Erosion

Unit 7: Landscapes & Mapping
Lesson 3 of 8

Objective: SWBAT define erosion as the gravity driven process of erosional particles | SWBAT describe the relationship between sediment particle size and stream velocity

Big Idea: There is a key relationship between stream velocity (how fast its moving) and the size of sediments that can be moved by that stream. Using this idea, students explore what erosion really is - the transport of weathered sediments to a different location
