Activity Overview


Weathering is the process that breaks down larger rocks into smaller rock pieces and erosion is the movement of these smaller pieces. There are four agents of erosion: gravity, water, ice, and wind. In this activity, students will create a spider map that identifies and illustrates each agent of erosion. To challenge your more advanced students, have them find examples of different land formations caused by the erosion types.
