Erosion in the Year 10 Geography classroom

TL Yr 10 Geo

Year 10 Geography students had the opportunity to experience erosion in the classroom.

Students have been studying changing environments and have just started to focus on coasts as our environment of focus.

Over the past few weeks we have discussed the biophysical processes that take place in coastal environments and so as to make the experience a little more realistic and with the help of the science department and their resources, we were able to recreate erosional processes, with a focus on waves and their erosional capacity. 

Students engaged well and took turns in creating wind, water and wave erosion and then discussed the changes that they caused on the landscape.

This was a great learning experience and hopefully one which will provide them with some further knowledge and clarity on erosional processes.
