Types of landforms

Types of landforms | Yr 8 Humanities | Scoop.it
You don't need an eye of a geologist to identify and admire the different types of landforms around you. Being well-versed with the basic features of various landforms and their formation process will be more than enough.

CD - The causes, impacts and responses to a geomorphological hazard.

 

Lots of great information here on the structure of the earth, plate tectonics, volcanoes, earthquakes as well as quizzes.

Quite interactive. Don't let the students play the Goodgame Empire game. I was hoping that its map base might help Geog skills and problem solving but not too relevant to Geog. Other interactives are good. Steve

Land changes over time due to weathering and erosion. The land then takes on a different appearance. In this unit, you will identify forces that cause change in landforms over time. Included are water, ice, wind and abraison. Hands-on activities include experimenting with chemical and physical changes, discovering how glaciers cause changes to the land, the effects of wind erosion, and changes in your own neighborhood. Online quizzes, videos, and printables.

Sheet of white paper. In Australia, a Sharpie was a 1970s pre skin head. Where do you get a Sharpie nowadays?

A 1990 Landsat satellite image (left) contrasts with a recent view of this briny, Central Asia lake. Diversion of rivers for cotton irrigation has shrunk its extent by three quarters in the last fifty years. Color variations are due to differences in detection equipment and processing techniques.
