Develop a model using an example to describe ways the geosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, and/or atmosphere interact.
In this activity, students will learn the pattern of major ocean currents and how they are changed by wind, land and water.
Rocks break down into smaller pieces through weathering. Rocks and sediment grinding against each other wear away surfaces. This type of weathering is called abrasion, and it happens as wind and water rush over rocks. The rocks become smoother as rough and jagged edges break off. In this activity, you will model how abrasion works.
