This is a simple diagram of erosion and deposition in a river system. Systems thinking can sometimes be challenging for students, and this is a clear visual that shows the relationship between the speed of a river and the amount of erosion or deposition that occurs.
This diagram can be used best to supplement a reading or an activity about river systems, or systems thinking in general. Enjoy!
Also included in a quiz that consists of 10 multiple choice questions and one constructed response question. All questions are taken from previous Earth Science Regents exams and can be answered with the information on the graphic.
