Weathering and Erosion: Crash Course Kids


Weathering Erosion and Deposition Game - Each team had to weather away a piece of their Lego landform, crabwalk (erode it) to the other end of the room, and deposit it on the desk. It showed how weathering away of rock makes it smaller and smaller, erosion is when sediment gets moved from one place to another, and deposition is when sediment gets dropped off to make new landforms.
