SCI.6.SC.6.E.6.1: Science

Describe and give examples of ways in which Earth's surface is built up and torn down by physical and chemical weathering, erosion, and deposition.

SCI.6.SC.6.E.6.2: Science

Recognize that there are a variety of different landforms on Earth's surface such as coastlines, dunes, rivers, mountains, glaciers, deltas, and lakes and relate these landforms as they apply to Florida.

Reviewer Comments:

This short podcast is part of the Meet Me at the Corner series. It is a virtual field trip of the gargoyles of the City College of New York. A young boy asks an architect about gargoyles and they lead us on a tour of the college, explain what the gargoyles are, why they are there and the differences between gargoyles and chimeras. This interesting video is well produced, highly informational and does indeed bring a piece of NYC to students all over the world.
