100

Name the two types of forces that change Earth’s surface.
Constructive and Destructive

100

Name three landforms found on Earth's surface.
Mountains, hills, mountain valleys, plateaus, plains, river valleys, and flood plains

100

How often do changes to the Earth's surface occur?
All the time!

100

Name the three properties used to identify surface features.
Location, shape, and erosion

100

What is Earth’s rocky outer layer called?
The crust

200

Give an example of a constructive force.
Deposition, volcanic activity, faults, earthquakes, magma

200

Name two types of bodies of water found on Earth’s surface.
Oceans, rivers, lakes, marshes

200

Landslides are large movements of land down a steep slope. Give an example of a type of landslide.
Mudslide, rock fall, and avalanche

200

True or False: Chemical Reaction can cause erosion.
False- Chemical reaction can cause weathering, but not erosion.

200

Name the type of map that shows the shape of Earth’s surface and the elevation of surface features.
Topographic Map

300

Name two types of destructive forces.
Erosion, earthquakes, volcanoes, weathering

300

What landform can be formed by the build-up of sand over thousands of years?
Sand dunes

300

What environmental factors are causing the glaciers to melt?
Climate changes and increasing temperatures

300

What causes a sinkhole?
The land above the weathered rock sinks or a cave collapses.

300

What famous American landmark on the Earth’s surface was created by the destructive force of erosion?
The Grand Canyon

400

What constructive force can create small islands?
Deposition

400

How were the Hawaiian Islands formed?
Volcanic activity

400

What would cause solid limestone to change into a cave?
Water that causes weathering and erosion

400

Describe how the Himalayan Mountains were formed.
Huge pieces of the earth’s crust moved into each other, which created pressure that forced the crust to fold and make mountains.

400

What do the continental rise, the continental shelf, and the continental slope make up?
The continental margin

500

Define “deposition.”
A constructive force in which sediments that have been moved from one place are dropped or released in another.

500

When acidic water dissolves minerals in rock and makes holes in the rock, what landform will eventually be formed?
A cave

500

What kind of weathering process breaks larger rocks into smaller pieces of rock known as sediment?
Mechanical weathering

500

Why is most of Earth’s water unusable?
It is locked in ice sheets or glaciers.

500

How do the contour lines of a topographical map help us?
The contour lines show us the areas with the same elevation
