Unit 2: The Changing Surface of Earth


Project Type: History
Research a particular type of landform: cave, canyon, cliffs, islands, mountains, plains, or plateaus. Focus on the location of the landform, how it developed, the forces of nature that act on it, why do you feel the landform is unique, and what is being done to preserve it. Design a tourist brochure about the landform and list some of the more famous examples of the landform from around the world.

These sites will help you research types of landforms and geologic history.
