It’s been a lot of fun to learn in detail what each one is.
You are more than welcome to visit all of our posts and even get the free printables that I made to teach my children these concepts.
In this post, we will be making a Facts on Weathering, Erosion & Deposition Printable Craft to review all three words so kids can remember them easily.
Don’t forget to check out our awesome hub for all kinds of erosion, weathering and deposition printables and activities!
Prepare yourself mentally for an awesome activity.
Who says that effective educational tools have to be hard, boring or complicated!
This is a fantastic craft with weathering, erosion and deposition images and facts.
They are all set up in a fun wheel that will help kids learn a lot.
Some of the things that they will learn are the similarities and the difference of each of these environmental effects on the earth.
To make this rotating wheel, you need:
- cardstock (Thicker paper lasts longer. If you don’t have cardstock, you can print it on regular paper, but glue the two wheels on paper plates and then cut them to the size of the wheels. This will provide more support.)
- color printer,
- brass fastener,
- crayons or markers
