How to draw erosion
Soil erosion lesson for kids -know more about it!
Erosion is a geological phenomenon in which natural forces such as wind and water wear away and move earthen materials. Weathering is a similar mechanism that breaks down or dissolves rock without involving movement.
The majority of erosion is caused by liquid water, wind, or ice (usually in the form of a glacier). Erosion occurs when the wind is dusty, or when water or glacial ice is muddy. The brown color means that rock and soil particles are trapped in a fluid (air or water) and are being moved from one location to another. Sediment is the term for the transported liquid.
The term “physical erosion” refers to the mechanism by which rocks change their physical properties without altering their chemical makeup. Rocks get smaller and smoother as a result of physical erosion. Clastic sediments are produced as rocks are eroded by physical erosion. Clastic sediments are made up of older rock fragments that have been transported from their original site.
Physical erosion may also be caused by ice and liquid water, when their movement causes rocks to collide or break. Some rocks crack and crumble, while others are eroded. Since they have been eroded by frequent contact with other river rocks, river rocks are also much smoother than rocks found elsewhere.

Grass is one of the most important plants on the planet, despite its unattractive appearance. The chlorophyll inside gives it its lovely green color, which is a pigment used by plants in photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants turn sunlight into chemical food energy, and chlorophyll is needed for the first steps of this process. When grazing animals such as buffalo, deer, or cows consume the grass, the food energy is contained in the grass plants. When you eat beef or drink milk, you are eating solar energy that was previously processed as food energy by grass!
Grass is also beneficial because it helps to prevent soil erosion. Erosion is the process of earth materials being carried away by water, ice, and wind. We don’t want soil to be eroded because it can take millions of years to shape, and humans have spent years studying how to avoid erosion. You’ll see how the presence of grass influences the rate of erosion in this experiment, but first you’ll need to learn more about grass structure. Project Download
Weathering and erosion: crash course kids #10.2
Natural forces shift weathered rock and soil from one site to another by erosion.
Erosion is caused by gravity, running water, glaciers, waves, and wind.

Sediment is the substrate that is moved by erosion.
Erosion, weathering, and deposition are all active processes on the planet.
Gravity pushes everything into Earth’s core, allowing rock and other materials to slide downhill.
Weathering and erosion are caused by water movements (both on land and underground), which alter the land’s surface features and create underground formations.
The following are the results of these processes:

Erosion and soil
Students learn about water erosion through an experiment in which small-scale buildings are put along a virtual riverbank to undergo various levels of flooding. They will learn how soil conditions affect the stability or failure of civil engineering projects, as well as how the twists and bends (curvature, sinuosity) in a river affect erosion. They use a 3D printer or LEGO® parts to create model houses, which they then test to see how slow (laminar) and quick (turbulent) water flow over the soil affect their designs and riverbank placements. Students create ideas about how to minimize harm in civil engineering projects by making forecasts, observations, and assumptions about the stability of their model houses.
Civil and geotechnical engineers thoroughly examine the soil in the region where structures will be constructed in order to better prepare for the structures’ potential protection. Strong foundations are needed for civil engineering projects such as skyscrapers, bridges, and highways, and they should be placed in areas that are not prone to erosion. Engineers must also be familiar with the different types of water-resistant building materials. Extending base structures, installing trees, and changing the water flow or path are all possible engineering solutions to erosion problems. This activity’s erosion table presentation demonstrates how water can shift soil and how erosion can impact structures.
