This interactive Earth science resource provides students with a variety of images of the effects of naturally occurring erosion. The resource opens with a map of North America on which seven locations are marked. The instructions tell students to click on each location to open a photograph that reveals the landscape features that erosion has produced. Photo captions briefly explain what each image is showing. In one example, students click on a location in Utah and view a picture of arches that wind-blown sand has created in the rocks at Arches National Park. Ocean waves, a glacier, and a river are among the causes of the erosion featured in the other images. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
