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.

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.
Oh, the learning joy!
These penguins danced the cold away!
After brainstorming information about the daylight, twilight, and midnight ocean layers, we used paper plates in a host of ways to create ocean creatures. With lights, flashlights, and no lights, we simulated swimming in our proper layers. Pretty fishy around here!
