ES: WED Scavenger Hunt

Weathering, Erosion, Deposition Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunt perimeters:  DAY ONE

  • Students will stay together within view of Mrs. G as we walk around the school.  Students will observe safety guidelines – dressing appropriately, not climbing on things, staying out of the road, do not run, carry iPad carefully, do not disrupt or harm things found outside.
  • Students may group together (2-3 people) to identify areas that show examples of weathering, erosion, and deposition found on their scavenger hunt list.  Students are required to move from place to place, not using the same place for all of their photos. Each group must use different places from each other.
  • Students are required to record their observations for each location – time, conditions, weather, etc.  with labels to match their pictures.
  • Students are required to make a simple map of where their locations are with labels.

Your challenge today is to identify the areas that show examples of the concepts below. Once you find them, you will need to take pictures/videos of the item in order to create your weathering, erosion, and deposition presentation.  You will be required to show where you went on a simple map.

  1. Find an area on the school grounds where there is evidence of erosion by water.
  2. Find an area on the school grounds where there is evidence of erosion by wind.
  3. Find items that have been moved and deposited in a new location due to water.
  4. Find items that have been moved and deposited in a new location due to wind.
  5. Find an example where water or ice has weathered a material.
  6. Find an example of where a plant’s roots have weathered a material.
  7. BONUS:  Find lichen.
