4-ESS2-1. Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation. [Clarification Statement: Examples of variables to test could include angle of slope in the downhill movement of water, amount of vegetation, speed of wind, relative rate of deposition, cycles of freezing and thawing of water, cycles of heating and cooling, and volume of water flow.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment is limited to a single form of weathering or erosion.]
One of the more simple, yet at the same time, complex (confusing) concepts to teach. I needed a resource to teach students that weathering breaks down the rock, Erosion (and Transport) moves and makes the broken rock smaller as it goes, and Deposition deposits the rock, usually in the form of sediment to create various landforms or features. It is not the what that confuses the kids, but the HOW that does it (wind, ice, water, etc. & mechanical, chemical, biological...).
