CD - The geomorphic processes that produce landforms, including a case study of at least one landform.

 

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.

Earth Structural Layer Cake

Earth Structural Layer Cake | Year depth Study 1 | Scoop.it

"One of their lessons [in a series involving geologic sciences] involved teaching the kids about the structure of the Earth. One of her friends came up with the idea of presenting a model of the Earth made out of cake. So my sister asked me if I could make a spherical cake with all the layers of the Earth inside it."

I think that this came out awesome! I definetly don't think that I would be able to pull something like this off. However what I found intersting about this was that it was like a cake map. Students were able to get a visual about what the earth's core is like. It visually shows them all the different layers of the earth. Just by visually seeing the cake like this will help a lot more kids to remember this lesson. Also by the baker putting the countries in their accurate locations makes this cake even that much better. They are veiwing a map and they don't even know it. I think this cake is a great tool to use to show students just how the earth is actually made up. By allowing the students to visually see it also makes it more likely for them to remember the material. Viewing maps can teach so much, which is why I think this "cake map" is an awesome way to teach and get the kids attention!
