  1. 1. Earth’s Landforms and Bodies of Water<br />Ashleigh Bailey<br />EDU 290<br />Photo Credit: Microsoft Clipart<br />
  2. 2. Landforms<br />Landforms – shapes of land created through forces of nature<br />Continents<br />Mountains<br />Faults<br />Volcanoes<br />Where is a landform near you?<br />Photo Credit: Microsoft Clipart<br />
  3. 3. Plate Tectonics<br />Plate Tectonics – a theory that states large, slow slabs(plates) under continents and oceans move to carry the land and ocean floor <br />
  4. 4. Pangaea<br />Many years ago all of Earth’s land formed one supercontinent called “Pangaea”<br />Continental drift- plates moved which caused Pangaea to break up<br />
  5. 5. Continents<br />After many years, Pangaea broke up<br />Today, we have 7 continents<br />North America<br />South America<br />Europe <br />Asia<br />Africa <br />Australia<br />Antarctica<br />What continents have you been to?<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Plate Movement<br />Plates colliding with one another create mountains<br />A crack in the Earth where plates are moving create a fault<br />One plate moving on top of another creates a volcano<br />
  8. 8. Bodies of Water<br />Most of Earth is water – 70%<br />Bodies of Water can be big and small<br />Streams and Rivers<br />Lakes <br />Oceans<br />What is a body of water near you?<br />Photo Credit: Microsoft Clipart<br />
  9. 9. Streams and Rivers<br />Streams flow over land in a channel<br />They move from high ground to low ground<br />Rivers are usually formed by small streams joining together<br />The many small streams are called tributaries<br />The more tributaries, the larger the river<br />Tributaries and rivers together are called a river system<br />
  10. 10.
  11. 11. Lakes<br />A Lake is a body of water surrounded by land<br />A lake is formed when water fills a hole in the Earth’s surface<br />North America has the most amount of lakes<br />Some lakes are also called “seas”<br />The Sea of Galilee<br />Some lakes are human made<br />Dams and reservoirs <br />
  12. 12.
  13. 13. Oceans<br />Earth has one great body of water that is divided by the landinto four parts<br />Pacific Ocean<br />Atlantic Ocean<br />Indian Ocean<br />Arctic Ocean<br />Under the water, the land has many features<br />Valleys, plains, mountain ranges<br />Photo Credit: Microsoft Clipart<br />
  14. 14. Oceans<br />Oceans move:<br />Currents are streams of ocean water that move like large rivers<br />Tidesare the rise and fall of ocean waters<br />We see them as waves<br />What ocean are you nearest to?<br />
