Geoscience Australia Metadata for Weathering, erosion, landforms and regolith - Teacher notes and student activities

Geoscience Australia Metadata for Weathering, erosion, landforms and regolith - Teacher notes and student activities | RPSHS SCIENCE - AC Yr 8 - Rocks & Minerals | Scoop.it
Weathering, erosion and deposition are all around us. Without these processes we would not have our mountains, river valleys, sandy beaches or even the soil in which we grow our food. This booklet outlines the processes of weathering, erosion and deposition for the information of teachers and students. Inlcudes case studies about the formation of many Australian landforms such as Uluru, the Warrumbungles and the Bungle Bungles. The booklet also includes reproducible student activities that provide students with fun and easy ways to learn about the processes that shape the Earth.
- 50 page booklet
- 8 student activities
- suggested answers
A comprehensive resource to introduce your students to the concept of regolith, an important way of looking at, and mapping, the landscape.
Suitable for primary Years 5-6 and secondary Years 7-12.
