The formation of relief and landscape
Mountains, valleys, islands, hills ... What makes our planet have such diverse landforms? Has it always been as it is now? In this unit we will learn that the landforms of the earth´s crust are due to internal and external processes that have been happening for millions of years. We will learn about tectonic plates and how they move, discover how they relate to the continents and the distribution of mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes, and learn how this determines the various land formations, inland and coastal.
