SC.6.E.6.2
Recognize that there are a variety of different landforms on Earth’s surface such as coastlines, dunes, rivers, mountains, glaciers, deltas, and lakes and relate these landforms as they apply to Florida.

SC.6.E.6.1
Describe and give examples of ways in which Earth’s surface is built up and torn down by physical and chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition.

SC.6.N.3.4
Identify the role of models in the context of the sixth-grade science benchmarks.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students will:
• identify there are different types of landforms found on Earth’s surface, including:
o Coastlines, Dunes, Rivers, Mountains, Glaciers, Deltas, Lakes
• differentiate landforms found in Florida (such as aquifers, caverns, and sinkholes, etc.) from those found outside Florida (such as mountains, glaciers, etc.

Students will:
• describe and cite examples of ways in which Earth’s surface is built up and torn down by physical and chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition
• explain and differentiate the processes of physical weathering, chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition
• create a model to investigate ways to prevent the erosion of Florida’s landfor
