In preparation for our trip next week, we have been finding out about weathering and erosion. We conducted a range of investigations to explore how regions could be damaged. Our investigations covered physical weathering (when water freezes and expands in cracks), biological weathering (when tree roots damage the pavements), chemical weathering (acidic rain) and erosion (when wind and water damage the landscape.
We also explored how coastlines are formed. Using clay, sand and water, we constructed our own coastline which includes headlands, stacks, stumps and bays.
