The purpose of the assessment probe, in this chapter, is to elicit children’s ideas about the Earth materials that make up landforms. The probe is designed to reveal whether students recognize that mountains are made primarily of rock—a precursor idea to understanding the weathering of mountains by water, wind, and ice.
The teacher could use Google maps to show students pictures of different mountains. Students may or may not have an experience with driving through a mountain which would be helpful in their ability to answer this question.
