Product Description
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...).

Printing
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dimensions 24"x36". It will print safely on regular copy paper. Make sure that you have your settings to fit the document to print before you actually print.
Not a lot of wall space? Want to save paper? Display this on your interactive whiteboard during the lesson.

Editing
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It is a high-resolution vector-based illustration created in graphic design software.
This file cannot be edited in any office software (ex, Word, Powerpoint).However, I discovered that you can use Inkscape, an open source (FREE) vector-based program, to open and edit the PDFs included in the download, although you will most likely need to make some adjustments to the file after you do. This will enable you to use vector-based graphics for cleaner anchor charts/posters.

Issues/Corrections
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you spot a typo or other errors contact me immediately for a revision. I try to proofread my own work and have other sets of eyes check it as well, but some things slip through. I can make corrections nearly immediately. Don't hesitate to contact me.

Custom Work
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you need a custom version of this file, please don't hesitate to contact me.
I want you to be happy with your purchase!
