Teach students about the shape of our world with a SORT about Building Up or Eroding aligned with the Next Generation Science Stations for Second Grade. In this station, students read about different types of landforms and learn about how they are made, either through processes of building up or erosion.

A second-grade science station about landforms that have been built up or landforms that have been worn away. This interactive elementary science activity is perfect for second graders who need to learn about landforms. #sciencestation #secondgradescience #elementaryscience

What is Included in the Building Up or Erosion Sort Station

Included in the Sort about the Building Up or Erosion of Landforms are:

  • Larger table-group color sorting cards
  • Smaller cut and paste sort for individual students
  • Differentiated questions in short answer, fill-in-the-blank, and multiple-choice formats. Worksheet and task cards are included for some options.
  • Answer key

Building Up or Erosion Sort for Table Groups

There are two ways to do this sort. One way is in table groups where students collaboratively look at the images on the cards, read about each landform, and decide how each landform was made.

Elementary students sort landforms that have been built up or worn away. This science station aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for second grade. Students read a passage and have two options for the sort: color table sort and a black and white cut and paste sort. After sorting students respond to the sort and reading passage by answering questions in one of four formats including short-answer and multiple-choice. #NGSS #secondgradescience #secondgrade

Based on the information on each card, which describes how landforms are created, students will decide if each landform forms through a process of building up or eroding.

This sort has colorful images that students analyze and information that students read to learn more about each landform.

Cut and Paste Sort Option

The second way to do the sort is a cut and paste option. Students can do both options: sort color option as a whole group and the cut and paste option individually. Or you can choose to have students do only one option.

The cut and paste option is all in black and white and a worksheet format. After reading the informational passage, students look at the images, read the information on each landform, and then sort them into the correct category: build up or worn away.

Differentiated Responses

Like all of our science stations, differentiated responses are available for students to demonstrate their understanding. Below is an example of the Short Answer worksheet. Fill-in-the-blanks and multiple-choice task cards are also available.
