Layers of Earth

Term 2, Week 3 & 4

Layers of Earth!


Room 9 children have been learning about the layers of Earth!

We talked about; core, mantle, crust and ocean/land!

We decided to make a model of the Earth to better our understanding :)








 We flatten each layers and wrapped them on top of another...!








 Then we put lands on top of the ocean, re-creating our planet, Earth!









Here is how we made our Earth models :D








Our final product!









(Room 9 children really love our classroom idol, Kermit the Frog)






We cut our planets in HALF and talked about each layer.
They were VERY GOOD at naming them and talking about what they are.










Volcanoes

Term 2, Week 2

VOLCANOES!


Room 9 learnt about features of a volcano and how it erupts.

We talked about what happens when an eruption happens and what it looks like.

We decided to build our own volcanoes using playdough and paper cups in class!




First, we molded playdough around paper cups to make our own volcanoes...








... Then we coloured them using paint and crayons!











GREAT TEAM WORK, GUYS!





When our volcanoes were all nice and dry, we took them outside to erupt them!






We mixed:
3 tbsp of baking soda
1 tsp of liquid soap
1 cup of vinegar
Little bit of water
Red dye



Time to erupt our volanoes!!
