The earth surface is extremely interesting. It is made out of rocks and silt and numerous different components that, with the assistance of water, air, ice and different things, can be separated into littler bits.

A few components like water and ice can break up rock over time and air does its erosion and weathering “magic” by getting and diverting particles of soil and rock.

What is Weathering?

To understand what weathering and erosion are, you can read this link and then come back to see how we applied our knowledge.

Made straightforward, weathering is an adjustment in the science in a stone, by water, ice or air after some time. Weathering is where rocks change structure with holes, slashes or curves framed in the stones.

What is Erosion?

Erosion, on the other hand, is also called mass wasting. This means that water, air or both move the rocks or parts of the rocks.

You will see gravel, rock or even stones descend on the grounds because, as you know, gravity is the supreme power on this planet. Commonly, you will see both erosion and weathering close to one another on rock formations.

Our Summer road trip a few years ago took us to the beautiful states of Colorado and Utah. Most of the images in your free printable set were actually taken by me during our trip.

We had such a wonderful time and yes, we has an impromptu lesson on weathering and erosion while on the road because we saw so much of it, especially at Arches National Park in Moab, Utah.

Basically, your free printable set will be printed with a color printer and then laminate the cards. Note: you can print the cards on one page each or you can change the layout to print 2 cards per page.

This will save you ink, but the images might end up too small to really learn to distinguish weathering and erosion. Just something to think about. Then, cut the labels that say “erosion” and “weathering.” Now you are ready to begin your lesson!

What is the Difference between Weathering and Erosion?

Begin your Earth Science lesson by introducing your children to the definition of erosion and weathering.

Then, demonstrate to your youngsters how the cards work and state “This is what erosion looks like” and “This is what weathering looks like.” The arrows are very helpful to show what exactly we need to look at and focus on.

You will compare both cards in the third activity. Notice all of the differences and similarities. Can they tell the difference by looking at the two cards side by side?

Discussing these things aloud with them is super important to learn their thought process and guide them in the right direction.

The last activity is to take out the two cards (12 pictures total) that have 2 arrows. These cards say “Erosion or Weathering?” at the top.

Use the labels that you printed and place an arrow next to each arrow to show which arrow is pointing to the erosion and which is pointing to the weathering.
