This is a lesson plan on weathering and erosion which aligns with the 4 - 6th Grade Science Curriculum. The lesson introduces, defines, and gives verbal and visual examples of weathering and erosion through the study of the Grand Canyon.
The Grand Canyon is perhaps the most ideal example of both weathering and erosion through which students will be able to grasp not only the concepts of weathering and erosion but the idea of the chemical and physical changes of the Earth over long periods of time.
This lesson includes 16 slides on:
- Affects of weathering and erosion on the formation of the Grand Canyon
- Multiple choice & True and False Quiz
- Quiz Answer Key
- Short - Answer post lesson written assessment.
