Erosion and deposition have taken place throughout Earth’s history and have created a variety of landforms.
This video satisfies the 2-ESS2 Earth’s Systems requirement for second grade proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
ESS2.A: Earth Materials and Systems
Wind and water can change the shape of the land. (2-ESS2-1)
ESS2.B: Plate Tectonics and Large-Scale System Interactions
Maps show where things are located. One can map the shapes and kinds of land and water in any area. (2-ESS2-2)
ESS2.C: The Roles of Water in Earth’s Surface Processes
Water is found in the ocean, rivers, lakes, and ponds. Water exists as solid ice and in liquid form. (2-ESS2-3)
