Activity Overview


Weathering can be split up into three types: physical, biological, and chemical weathering. It is the breaking of larger rocks into smaller pieces. Erosion is the movement of these smaller pieces of rock. In this activity, students will create a spider map that provides examples of how rocks are weathered or eroded. Students should be sure to include illustrations with their definitions.
