    Who knew water, erosion, and deposition activities and worksheets could be ENGAGING?! Give yourself a break, organize your students, and ENGAGE them with PPTs and activities! Topics within the bundle include: stream development, erosion, groundwater formations and erosion, ocean shoreline erosion - tides, waves, and longshore current. Students will investigate erosional forces on the ground, in the ground, and along the coastline! Includes introduction and activity for each topic, a review and editable test for the unit.

    The following resources are included:

    Hydrology, Erosion, and Stream Introduction

    Welcome to hydrology! This resource includes 9 student pages that introduce hydrology, erosional forces, and the stages of stream development. A stream table lab is included. Your students will be ENGAGED and DOING. Below is an outline of the student pages.

    • Introduction to hydrology and erosion (this one page student fill in the blank handout comes with a 10 slide PPT. It is meant to be a brief introduction.
    • Vocabulary sheet (for reference) on the parts of a stream.
    • Stream development: Students will illustrate directions that explain the difference between a young, mature, and old stream.
    • Development of a meander: Diagram with explanations and three student questions.
    • Formation of an oxbow lake: Similar to meander handout; meant to be completed together.
    • Stream table lab (3 pages): Directions, diagramming, questions.
    • Labeling the parts of a stream.


    Groundwater PPT, Notes, Demo, Handout, Project

    ENGAGE your students on the topic of groundwater! Yes, groundwater! My students LOVE this section! Begin with a PPT jam packed with cool pictures and definitions of groundwater formations. Terms include: groundwater, aquifer, well, artesian well, water table, spring, hot spring, geyser, care, carbonic acid, stalagmite/ stalactite, sink hole. Student notes are in the form of fill-in-the-blank.

    Next, you'll do a demonstration for kids (preview) showing the difference between permeable and impermeable surfaces. Demo includes handout and follow-up questions. I know the demo seems simple - but it's powerful! I promise! For the demo you'll need: 4 clear jars or cups, play doh, sand, gravel/pebbles, dyed water.

    Finally, a rubric and directions are included for students to diagram and write about 4 groundwater formations. Students illustrate, color, and explain 4 of the formations. It really makes them think!

    Ocean Shoreline: Waves, Longshore Current, Tides: PPT, Notes, Activity

    Waves, tides, and the longshore current cause erosion of our coastline. But how do I engage my students with these seemingly boring topics? I've got you covered! This resource includes a PPT, fill-in-the-blank notes, and a tides graphing activity - using real tide information!

    Save yourself a headache with these print-and-go resources.

    ❤Included is a PowerPoint introduction to the forces at work shaping our coastlines: waves, longshore current, and tides, with fill-in the blank student note sheets.

    ❤Also included is a graphing activity to help students gain experience with reading a tide chart and identifying spring and neap tides. Teacher notes are included. This graphing activity takes about 1 1/2 class periods.

    ❤Finally, a quick review sheet. All answers included.

    Water, Erosion, and Deposition Review Crossword Puzzle

    This crossword puzzle is a great review for water, erosion, and deposition. It covers the topics of hydrology, erosion, stream development, groundwater formations, and coastal erosion processes, including tides. It perfectly aligns with my Water, Erosion, and Deposition Bundle.
