Chapter 23 learning targets by section
23.1 Fresh water pg 704-708
I can describe the processes that make up the water cycle.
I can identify the sources of fresh water on Earth
23.2 Weathering and mass movement pg 709-712
I can describe the processes by which erosion wears down and carries away rock.
I can distinguish between chemical and mechanical weathering and describe the factors that affect the rate of weathering.
I can explain how the force of gravity contributes to erosion by mass movement.
23.3 Water shapes the land pg 713-717
I can explain how running water erodes the land.
I can identify features formed by erosion and deposition due to running water.
I can describe how caves and sinkholes are formed by groundwater erosion.
23.4 Glaciers and wind pg 719-724
I can describe the formation and movement of glaciers and identify features formed by glacial erosion and deposition.
I can explain the mechanisms and effects of wind erosion and deposition.
23.5 The restless oceans pg 725 -729
I can explain how the properties of ocean water change with depth.
I can distinguish between surface currents, deep currents, and upwelling.
I can explain the processes by which waves and currents cause erosion and deposition.
23.6 Earth’s history pg 732-738
I can distinguish between the relative and absolute dating of rocks.
I can describe the geologic time scale and what happened during the major divisions of geologic time.
