Content

  • Statement of inquiry
    • Scientific and technical innovators need to understand how power affects the processes that occur within systems.
  • Factual questions [Remembering facts and topics]
    • How are erratics | lateral moraines | medial moraines | terminal moraines | drumlins formed?
  • Conceptual questions [Analysing big ideas]
    • Is there such a thing as a 'textbook landform'?
  • Aims of this lesson
    • To have knowledge and understanding of glacial landforms associated with the deposition.

Task - Note making

For each of the landforms listed below, you need to define each and then produce a well annotated diagram to explain how and why they are formed.

  • erratics
  • lateral moraines
  • medial moraines
  • terminal moraines
  • drumlins

The diagram below may help you decide upon a style for your diagram but your diagram will include far more detail and insight.

The resources below will help you with your task.
