How to teach weathering, erosion, and deposition. FUN!

Weathering Erosion and Deposition Game -  Each team had to weather away a piece of their Lego landform, crabwalk (erode it) to the other end of the room, and deposit it on the desk.  It showed how weathering away of rock makes it smaller and smaller, erosion is when sediment gets moved from one place to another, and deposition is when sediment gets dropped off to make new landforms.

Beakers and Bumblebees - Weathering, Erosion & Deposition game: students create a lego structure, weather a piece away, erode it across the room (crab walk) then deposit it on another table.

Cookie Erosion- this is an alternative to our "fake rain" experiment. It might actually teach weathering and erosion better. On Tuesday we could do the 1 minute tests, and Wednesday do the 5 minute tests. This would have more information for the math graphs lessons too!

Erosion and Weathering printable lesson plan. This free lesson plan will make it easy to teach weathering and erosion to your children!

Erosion:  "The Great Race"  (This experiment shows children the effects weather has on erosion... water, glacial, and wind).  From The Mailbox

Erosion experiment - rain, glacial and wind This could be used as an experiment during class. This way the students could see how the process of erosion works on a smaller scale.

This Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition poster is designed to aide students in understanding that weathering, erosion, and deposition lead to the formation of new landforms. Weathering BREAKS down the rock into sediment, erosion MOVES the sediment to new places, and deposition DROPS the rock in a new place.The Texas TEK (4.7B) is listed within the poster.

This Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition. This helps students understand that these three aspects lead to creations of landforms and how each landform is made differently in the regions.
