This student-friendly but comprehensive 44 Slide Powerpoint Presentation is great for the introduction, application, critical thinking, and assessment of weathering, erosion, and deposition. These 3 main processes are clearly explained with examples of how they change the Earth’s surface and affect people. Your students will remain engaged as they witness the interesting story of the Old Man of the Mountain in New Hampshire with lots of fun pictures as they learn about the concepts at the same time. Students also follow a deposited pebble from the Old Man of the Mt. that takes them on a possible path (adventure) traveling to a beach in Florida. This adventure reinforces the concepts.
