CT.7.3. Energy in the Earth's Systems: Landforms are the result of the interaction of constructive and destructive forces over time. a) Volcanic activity and the folding and faulting of rock layers during the shifting of the Earth's crust affect the formation of mountains, ridges and valleys. b) Glaciation, weathering and erosion change the Earth's surface by moving earth materials from place to place.
7.3.7. Compare and contrast the major agents of erosion and deposition of sediments: running water, moving ice, wave action, wind and mass movement due to gravity.
7.3.8. Investigate and determine how glaciers form and affect the Earth's surface as they change over time.
7.3.9. Distinguish between weathering and erosion.
