Hands On Study of the Weather & Plate Tectonics

Fifth grade has been studying weather.  They have been looking at how density predicts how air masses will move.  In order to visualize density they made a density column showing how fluids will actually separate based on density with those with the lowest density on top of those with higher density.

Meanwhile, sixth graders have been studying sea-floor spreading while building up to the plate tectonics.  Students made a model of the sea- floor and mid continental ridges in order to explore the evidence Harry Hess discovered to prove Seafloor spreading.
