The human activities and the resulting effects on a local surface over time are explored in terms of the consequences for the environment. Learning Intentions Students will be able to: • state that the surface of the Earth changes over time; • identify human activities which cause changes to the Earth’s surface; • state that moving water washes away (erodes) soil; • explain how plants help prevent soil erosion; • appreciate that science knowledge helps people understand the consequences of their actions; • follow instructions to identify investigable questions about familiar contexts and predict likely outcomes from investigations; • make accurate observations; and • draw conclusions based on evidence.
