006 - I Spy Glacial Landforms
How do erosional and depositional processes create changing landforms in an Alpine Environment?
Approaches to Learning
Communication - Communication Skills - Exchanging thoughts, messages and information effectively through interaction - Share ideas with multiple audiences using a variey of digital environments and media.
Activity One - Create
You have now learnt about a range of different erosional and depositional landforms that can be found in current and relic Alpine Environments. Your task is to now produce a teaching resource for the current Diploma level students in Year 13. They are also studying extreme environments which focuses on Alpine landscapes and quite frankly they need a bit of help. You will firstly need to choose at least 8 different types of glacial landforms - these can be created by erosional or depositional processes. The idea is to describe what they look like, explain how they are formed and relate them to a real world example (preferably in the localish area of Switzerland and France). We are going to be doing this using Google Earth. For some of you using Google Earth may be brand new for others you will be 'old hands' at it.
To use Google Earth project to record the information and to link to a direct example.
To use place marks to identify the different landforms.
You may wish to change the place mark icon or colour to show if the landform is erosional or depositional.
To use a large information box for each landform, at each location do:
Include a title
Add an image of the landform and to reference it.
Explain the process of the formation of the landform.
To add at least three 'fullscreen slides' which introduce and add structure to the project.
Cirque U Shaped Valley Truncated Spurs
Hanging Valley Arete Pyramidal Peak
Lateral moraines Medial moraines Terminal Moraines
Student Generated Erosional Landform Guides
U Shaped Valley/Glacial Trough
How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed using Criteria A - knowing and understanding and Criteria C - Communicating.
