Curriculum Corner: Yr 4 Earth's Surface

posted 16 Sep 2019, 19:59 by Jennifer Crippin
Year 4 have been learning about the Earth’s Surface. We conducted experiments to explore what makes up our earth’s surface and we did this by looking at soil. Students looked at different types of soil from different places. We then combined the soil with water and shook it to see what happens when the soil settles. We drew annotated diagrams of what we saw. Students were then introduced to the terms erosion and weathering. We explored this concept further by creating a model of physical weathering on the three different rock groups.
