River System, Erosion And Deposition Review River System, Erosion And Deposition Review Presentation Transcript

  • River System, Erosion and Deposition Review Game
  • Question slide goes up
    Group collaboration time (Be careful, you don’t want the group next to you to hear you)
    Group response written on the board, face down
    On signal, all groups hold up answer boards
    Die is rolled
    Answer slide is shown
    If winning group is correct, points are added
    All other groups receive $50 if they answered correctly
    The rules…
  • What is the name for the rills, gullies, and streams that feed into a river?
    View slide
  • tributaries
    View slide
  • What are three names for the land area that provides water to a river system?
  • watershed, river basin, drainage basin
  • The wearing away or breaking down of rocks and sediment by mechanical or chemical means is _______________.
  • weathering
  • Oxidation, hydrolysis, and carbonic acids are examples of __________________.
  • chemical weathering
  • Photo Bonus
    Every group that answers correctly will get the points!
  • What type of chemical weathering is this an example of?
  • oxidation

  • deposition
  • Where do earthquakes and volcanoes usually occur?
  • at plate boundaries
  • What are the five agents of erosion and deposition?
