 Wearing away the land 
Text

Slide 1 - Tekstslide

Today's Lesson 
To do:

- Checking answers worksheet 
- Talk: flood damage 
- worksheets
Goals: 

- Know causes and consequences of floods

- Know different ways to prevent floods 

Slide 2 - Tekstslide

Task 
The start of a river is called: the SOURCE. Glaciers in high mountain areas melt. This water starts flowing and becomes a river.
Weathering mostly occurs at this part of the river, called the UPPER course. Large rocks are slowly broken down into smaller rocks.
One type of weathering is when roots of PLANTS AND TREES grow through ROCKS
The second type of EROSION takes place when WATER gets into cracks and crevices.

Slide 3 - Tekstslide

The second type of ……………………. takes place when ……………..gets into cracks and crevices.  
Frozen water then ……………………….. and becomes ice, forcing the rock to break into …………………….. pieces.
The third type of weathering happens when ……………………………. have large differences between day and night.
Frozen water then FREEZES and becomes ice, forcing the rock to break into SMALLER pieces.
The third type of weathering happens when TEMPERATURES have large differences between day and night.
This happens in mountain regions and desert areas. Rocks expand and contract constantly, causing the rocks to BREAK
WEATHERING is the process of wind, water and ICE shaping the landscape.

………………… cut through this landscape, taking along large amounts of …………………………. along its way.
Sediment such as sand and clay travel much further and faster, then larger stones such as ………….
When the smallest pieces of sediment are dropped (………………………), new land is formed. This mostly occurs at the …………
course of a river. Where a river ends up at sea is called: the …………….of the river.

Slide 4 - Tekstslide


RIVERS cut through this landscape, taking along large amounts of SEDIMENTS along its way.  
Sediment such as sand and clay travel much further and faster, then larger stones such as PEBBLES
When the smallest pieces of sediment are dropped (DEPOSITED), new land is formed.

This mostly occurs at the LOWER course of a river. Where a river ends up at sea is called: the MOUTH of the river.

Slide 5 - Tekstslide

Big rocks, heavy weathering, fast water, colder temperature, source
Erosion/ transportation. Slower water, hills 
smaller rocks
Deposition, new land forming, slow water, sand and small sediments, mouth

Slide 6 - Tekstslide

 Cause and consequence
