Last week, Primary students began talking about the Earth. It’s hard to imagine we live on an enormous planet, and even harder to imagine what we can see is such a tiny part of it! We began by explaining that our planet is a bit like an egg. The crust is like the eggshell, a very thin layer on the outside of the Earth. The white of the egg is like the mantle and the inner and outer core are similar to the yolk.
As we’re all still getting in the routine of morning meeting, our discussion was very simple. This gives younger children an opportunity to take in just as much information as they can process, while older children can ask additional questions during the work period. Every child has a chance to explore the related works that will be on our Science shelf for the next two weeks.
