We've been learning all about rocks and how Earth's landscape changes over time.
Lava from volcanic eruptions form new rocks. Existing sediment under pressure and over lots of time forms new rocks. And now we're learning about the erosion process. Rocks get broken up through root wedging, ice wedging, and just generally tumbling down the mountainside. Check out our sugar cube experiment to see the erosion process.
We've been learning about how landscapes change over time. Volcanoes create a very visible change! This week we learned that there are two types of volcanoes: cone and shield. We also learned that there are two types of lava: thick and thin. Cone volcanoes are explosive and have thick lava that forms felsite rocks. Shield volcanoes are more gentle and have thin lava that forms basalt rock. Check out how we explored the properties of thick and thin lava!
We're video taping our dance on Friday for the virtual performance!
Please take a moment to practice this dance at home.
Check it out in practice!
Today, in Fish in a Tree, Mr. Daniels challenged the class to solve a secret code.
Each letter stands for another letter. Can you crack it?
