Middle School Earth Science Lesson: Weathering, Erosion, & Deposition

Attention educators! Whether you're guiding students in a traditional classroom or leading young minds through homeschooling, this Middle School Earth Science Lesson: Weathering, Erosion, & Deposition resource is designed to simplify the teaching of vital Earth Science topics.

Focusing on Weathering, Erosion, and Deposition, this comprehensive two-day lesson is tailored for middle school students. The material, which spans a two-day lesson plan, provides both student and teacher versions of the presentation.

This Middle School Earth Science Lesson: Weathering, Erosion, & Deposition is organized to facilitate hands-on, inquiry-based learning while also promoting essential discussions. The lesson has been constructed in clear language, ensuring that middle school students find it accessible and straightforward.

To augment understanding, the presentation is enhanced with many visuals, and you'll also find six embedded videos. These videos make comprehension not only easier but also more engaging for young learners.

Here's a glimpse of the topics you'll encounter in sequence:

  1. Physical Weathering

  2. Chemical Weathering

  3. Erosion

  4. Sediment Transport

  5. Deposition

This resource equips educators with:

  • A teacher-specific version of the presentation

  • A student version of the presentation

  • Six integrated instructional videos

  • An auto-graded Exit Ticket

  • A separate quiz (along with an answer key)

  • A detailed student lesson handout

Crafted with attention to detail, this Earth Science lesson offers an effective and enjoyable learning experience. It serves as a reliable guide for educators aiming to instill a robust understanding of weathering, erosion, and deposition processes in middle school students.

Google and Distance Learning Ready

  • This lesson includes both Office and Google formats for ALL resources. The presentation is in PowerPoint and Google Slides while all documents contain Word and Google Doc versions.

  • Your resource is perfect for distance learning and integrates seamlessly with Google Classroom as I've included a link that will automatically create a copy of the resources and put them directly into your Google Drive with one click.

  • Download--> Open --> Click --> Assign to your students

Having both options allows you to use either without worrying about formatting issues as all the work has already been done for you. It safeguards you in case your department or school decides to go Google 100% and allows you as well as your students to access everything no matter where you are or what kind of equipment is being used.

The student version of the presentation contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.

I also have a range of assignments and lessons/units from other grade levels at my store.
