Plate Tectonics

We modeled plate tectonics with food.  Check out these examples!

***A convergent boundary is a place where two plates push together.  This type of collision can create mountains.



***A divergent boundary is a place where two plates pull apart from one another.  These can cause trenches to form and volcanic activity to increase.


***A transform boundary is a place where plates slip past each other in opposite directions.  Earthquakes often form along these boundaries.


Welcome, Josh King!

We are so excited to welcome a new TA into our classroom, Josh King!  Josh has a special love of math and science as he aspires to be a nurse soon.  His wonderful leadership and gigantic sense of humor are already a blessing.  Here he helps students create prototypes of birdfeeders designed to attract certain types of birds as part of our animal studies.
