In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina gives us a real world example of how the Hydrosphere and Geosphere affect each other in the form of Weathering and Erosion.
Participate in our six online activities to complete your Junior Ranger mission right from home and earn your virtual badge and certificate.
In this activity, students will gain an understanding of the value of using a scale model and the effect of water speed on erosion rate and stream formation.
After playing a board game to learn how to differentiate the three ways rocks can form, students analyze maps of local topography, water sources, and volcanic activity, to better understand how geology affects a given region. They also experience scale, recognizing geologic processes as fast or extremely gradual.
