Weathering, Erosion, and Soil

The Test for our new unit on Weathering, Erosion, and Soil will be Wed Nov 6th for B-Day and Thursday Nov 7th for A-Day. B-Day will lead this unit after Halloween due to our Make-Up day creating TWO B-Days in a row! (B-Days =Thurs Oct 31st and Monday Nov 4th)

Here are the flashcards for this unit–PLUS a few test diagrams to use in your study.

There will be 2 Honors assignments for this unit. The first will look at the events that led up to the Dust Bowl in the 1930’s Plains States. We will use two video clips to examine this work: Ken Burns’ PBS documentary “The Dust Bowl” and the Science Fiction Movie “Interstellar” directed by Chris Nolan. Here is a companion document to help guide your analysis of the Science Fiction viewpoint versus the PBS documentary (based on the actual event).
