What Is the Difference Between Weathering and Erosion?

Whether you are a brand new teacher or revisiting this part of the science curriculum after some time away, we’ve put together a quick guide you can use with your students when explaining how the Earth’s surface slowly changes over time.

Weathering

Weathering is a natural process where wind, rain and the sun’s heat gradually transform rocks or break them down into smaller pieces over time. This process plays a significant role in shaping the Earth’s surface.

Erosion

Erosion is the process by which rocks, soil and other materials are moved from one place to another by the action of wind, water or ice. It is a natural process that can occur over long periods of time and can have a significant impact on the Earth’s landscape.
