Weathering and Erosion Activities and Graphic Organizers

Weathering and Erosion Activities and Graphic Organizers

I have put a lot of time trying to make weathering, erosion, deposition, and soil engaging for students. The students love using these handouts to learn this material. This entire package contains ways to increase differentiated instruction for diverse learning styles. These handouts are visual and allow students to put theory into practice through multiple mediums. I have included 3 classroom supplementary activities and a great startup’ and closure game that really helps not only reinforce previously learned material, but reviews and engages students. Students also really love the vocabulary foldables. I use these foldables as a startup activity. i hope you enjoy these activities and graphic organizers. Earth science is as fun as you make it for your students. There is 24 pages of interactive activities contained in this package. This preview only shows a sample of what to expect. Answer keys are included where needed.

A Glaciated UK Landscape - The Cuillin Hills - AQA GCSE

A Glaciated UK Landscape - The Cuillin Hills - AQA GCSE

This presentation allows students to become familiar with some real features of both glacial landforms of erosion and deposition in a UK case study. It locates the study area and includes photographs of five specific features, enabling candidates to refer to them by name and, potentially, draw photo sketches in an examination. There is a mapwork exercise as part of this presentation. The 1:25 000 map extract is provided on a slide, which would best be supported by a paper copy.
