This assignment is designed for a fifth grade earth science lesson. This webquest is designed to enhance knowledge of how the surface of the earth changes due to volcanoes, earthquakes, uplift, weathering, and erosion.

Introduction

Our Changing World

 

The surface of our earth is always changing. Some changes happen over time and take thousands of years before there is a visible difference. Other changes in the earth's surface happen abruptly and in an instant. Through this activity, we will use the internet and online resources to discover how these changes occur. We will be looking back through the history of the earth to see how these changes effect how the earth looks, the climate of the earth, and the animals and people living on the earth.
