Science: Rocks, Soils and Landscapes

For Science we are exploring rocks, soils and landscapes and how they have changed over time. We have a challenge for you. Can you guess where the landscape pictured below comes from? Do you think you know what is causing this landscape to change over time? We would love to read your ideas. Please leave a comment with your ideas.


  1. Hi year 3 class!
    I love looking at pictures of landscapes. This one definitely looks like it is at a beach showing erosion of the rocks from the sea water. If I had to take a guess I would say maybe Hallett Cove beach??? Assuming it is somewhere local. Keep up the good work everyone!

  3. Dear Mr. Baldock’s class,

    Your picture is very interesting. We are not sure where it is, but we have seen areas that look similar. The students who have seen something like this saw it near the beaches and shores surrounding our state of Michigan in the United States. We had two guesses about what caused the landscape to change over time. Orion and Victoria thought it might have been a drought that caused water to dry up that used to be there. DJ and Nick thought it might have been water erosion from a nearby body of water. We are curious to know where it is and what caused it?

    Our class is learning about forests right now. Do you have any forests in your area?

      Dear Mrs. Moore and the Techie Kids,

      Thanks for your comment. We will let you know soon where this picture was taken and what has caused the changes over time.

      Yes we do have some forests that surround the reservoir, which is very close to our school. What would you like to know about it?
