We started our topic, Tremors, this week by looking at the different layers of the Earth and creating our own Earth models. We learnt about the different parts of a volcano and started to think about why volcanoes form and why earthquakes happen. We then tried to build earthquake proof structures using spaghetti!

We tested the durability, density and how permeable each of the rocks were. We compared the igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.

Rock Investigation

We worked in groups to create our own volcanoes. Once they were made, we used bicarbonate of soda, red food colouring and vinegar to make them erupt!
