Day 114: The Rock Cycle February 21, 2007

Posted by Admin in Geology, Video.

For a great view of weathering and erosion, we watched a little 30-second advertisement video clip for the Motorola PEBL phone. The video clip features the time-lapse weathering and erosion of a meteorite morphing into a smooth, soft ‘pebble’. After watching the clip, students wrote a one paragraph response to the clilp. If you missed class, Watch the video again via Google Videos by clicking play below or clicking here and check out the great representation of weathering and erosion!

Watch for both the erosion (movement of rocks, gravel, and sediment) as well as weathering (the breaking down of rocks into smaller pieces) as you watch the clip.

Tomorrow: Quiz over mineral characteristics – study the guided notes!
