Lower Elementary Learns About the Movement of Earth


In Science, our Lower Elementary students have been studying the ways that earth (lowercase e) can be moved by natural phenomena. Recently they talked about how wind can move earth, and they also watched a Bill Nye video on how the earth’s crust can be impacted by things like volcanoes and earthquakes. Last week they talked about how water can change the shape of land, and about the difference between emergent and submergent coastlines.

Students have been challenged to find (in the classroom or at home) a picture of an emergent or submergent coastline, whether in a photo, a book, a magazine, a movie, or anywhere else.
