What’s Left Behind: Redepositing

Part 3: What’s Left Behind: Redepositing

This unit begins with a PowerPoint lesson that explains what redepositing is. Using maps of the continental United States, the lessons ask students to locate various redepositing landmarks. Students also work in pairs to make a book about canyons, sandbars, deltas, caves and other natural formations created through redepositing. A special concentration of the desert and what landforms are found there along with a story-writing activity finish the unit.
