Constructive and Deconstructive
Processes that shape the Earth
Constructive process
• A constructive process is something that
adds something to the earth like a volcano
that erupted and added on to an island.
Deconstructive Process
• A deconstructive process is a process that
breaks down the earth like rain when it hits
the earth for extended periods of time it
breaks apart the earth.
Erosion
• The destructive process in which water or
wind loosens and carries away fragments
of rocks and or soil.
Weathering
• Weathering is the natural decaying or
wasting of rocks, soils and their minerals
at or near the surface of the earth.
Landforms formed by erosion
• The Grand Canyon is a landform that was
formed by a river chipping a way at the
earth to create a large gorge that is now
the Grand Canyon.
