Students explore weathering and erosion as they will take a "Virtual" Field Trip to different locations around the globe. The concepts of weathering and erosion are reviewed along with different agents of erosion. Students visit monumental locations in Arizona, South Dakota, Oregon, Hawaii, and The Galápagos Islands. At the end of the field trip, students are provided with a research task to wrap up their learning experience and apply their knowledge to a recent event that took place on the Galápagos Islands. Students use a set of guided notes to follow along with the field trip.

This resource is an extremely creative approach to educating students about real life examples of weathering and erosion.

Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
Collect data to provide evidence for how the motions and complex interactions of air masses result in changes in weather conditions. Emphasis is on how air masses flow from regions of high pressure to low pressure, causing weather (defined by temperature, pressure, humidity, precipitation, and wind) at a fixed location to change over time, and how sudden changes in weather can result when different air masses collide. Emphasis is on how weather can be predicted within probabilistic ranges. Examples of data can be provided to students (such as weather maps, diagrams, and visualizations) or obtained through laboratory experiments (such as with condensation). Assessment does not include recalling the names of cloud types or weather symbols used on weather maps or the reported diagrams from weather stations.
