Soils, Rocks, and Landforms: Investigation 3 Study Material
Students may use both their Science Notebook and their Soils, Rocks, and Landforms book while taking the test. The following material will be on the assessment.
1. Students should be able to read a topographic map, identify contour lines, and determine the contour intervals.
2. Students will need to differentiate between processes that change landforms at a rapid speed and processes that change landforms slowly (earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, tree roots, glaciers, weathering, floods, etc.)
3. Students will need to explain the effects of glaciers, landslides, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and floods.
4. Students will evaluate solutions to the effects of the processes listed above and determine the best solution to a problem.
