Part II.

Cities, the Earth’s Plates and the Layers of the Earth:

Immediately after our discussion about the earthquake and tsunami, the kids were interested in how buildings hold up to waves and the moving plates.  They began to build.  Tim and Jake were so focused and created an amazing set of famous buildings and structures.

We then began talking about the plates under the earths surface and all the layers of the earth.

We read about it:

We wrote, memorized the layers and thought about how amazing it is that all of this is under our earth:

We used sea glass to recreate the layers of the earth:

We then created this with oil pastels:

Then we used clay to create all the different layers in a round ball and then cut it in half:

From here we began another study in how the earth works with all of it’s different levels.

Part III. coming soon…
