Gone With the Weathering: The Result — Erosion
   

Did you ever wonder why the Cuyahoga River is so crooked, the Rocky Mountains are so high or the road by your house gets so bumpy? The lessons in this guide and the accompanying videos will help you discover how majestic mountains, crooked rivers and bumpy roads are formed. This teacher guide is divided into three sections: slow weathering, fast weathering and the redepositing of sediments. In each section, the desert is used as an example of the results of weathering and erosion.
