In this lesson students will use their knowledge of rainfall, vegetation, and the slope angles of hillsides to make decisions, predict outcomes, and analyze the effects of certain events or practices (e.g., overgrazing, forest fires, and clear-cutting woodlands). This lesson will help students appreciate the complex relationships between various physical processes and the features they help create; understand the physical processes affecting the surface of the Earth; and apply this new knowledge to make intelligent predictions and decisions.
