Description:

In this interactive Earth science resource, students are first presented with six photographs, each featuring a different mechanical weathering event in which rock is broken down. Examples of the events include road damage due to ice heaving and the expansion of cracks in rocks due to tree growth. Students are instructed to click on each labeled image to see an enlarged version of it. In the enlarged view, brief text, often accompanied by visual cues such as arrows, explains the physical weathering process shown. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
