You must explain/define the force, provide two examples and locations of landforms, 3 resulting landforms and descriptions, and an explanation of why it is a constructive force. Include 2 additional facts about volcanoes or earthquakes. You must cite any websites you use for information. Include a picture with a caption and cite the website from where the picture was taken.

On the bottom of the newsletter, choose a constructive force example/location that you could travel to go see. Give 5 to 6 facts about the location/example. Include a picture with a caption and cite the website from where the picture was taken.

3. DESTRUCTIVE FORCE: The first page will include information about one destructive force(runoff & erosion, erosion by rivers, groundwater erosion, glaciers, erosion by waves, or wind erosion). You must explain/define the force, provide two examples and locations of landforms, 3 resulting landforms and descriptions, and an explanation of why it is a destructive force.
