Weathering, Erosion and Deposition Posters

In Science, we are learning about slow changes that the Earth undergoes (weathering, erosion, and deposition).  Yesterday, we went on a scavenger hunt, looking for evidence of these changes around the school.  Armed with their iPads, the kids found examples of these processes and took pictures.We then used the app Pages to create a poster highlighting the changes they found.

Thank you, Jeremy, for this awesome example.

This was a quick, easy project that gave me a chance to assess my students' knowledge the content.  We used a pre-made template from Pages to make the posters. Overall, this project took about an hour to complete; 30 mins for exploring and taking pictures and 30 minutes to complete the posters. 

Tips for using in your classroom:
  • They were not as many examples of the processes around the school as I had hope.  You may want to look around the day before, so you can point your students to the right spots.
  • Pages did not spell check the words in all caps.  This is a good place to talk to your students about remembering to edit their documents and not rely on spell check.
