Welcome back! I hope you have all had a great summer. I am so excited to get started on our topic Extreme Earth! We are going to travel to the Earth’s core to find out what is under our feet and create our own model of what is inside of our amazing planet. We are going to study volcanoes looking at how they are formed and what causes them to erupt, I can’t wait to make our own mini erupting volcanoes! We will also be looking at tectonic plates and how they can cause devastating earthquakes and tsunamis. We are going to use what we learn to write our own survival guides! Tornados are another fascinating natural phenomenon that we are going to study, where we will create our own to see how they are formed and look at how scientists track them and collect data about them using specialist equipment.
