Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition!

Who knew learning about Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition could be so much fun! We had fun Weathering away gobstoppers in our mouths today! It was neat to see that every thirty seconds, our candy was a different color! It just proved to us that weathering was taking place!

After we had a tasty treat to "weather", we played the weathering, erosion, and deposition game! Each team had to weather away a peice of their leggo landform, crabwalk (erode it) to the other end of the room, and deposit it on the desk! It really 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! It was a fun game!
Just another absolutely wild and crazy day in science!
