Time to say goodbye to our little critters

Term 4 saw Room 8 learning a lot about the little critters around us.

But they cannot live with us forever and in the last week of school we set them free. Here is a short movie of when we relased a weta to return to it's home.

Room 8 Makes A Model Of The Earth

Room 8 makes a model of the earth out of playdough
to help them understand how the earth is made up of
layers.

How Are Volcanoes Made

To understand how volcanoes are made we need to know what the earth looks like from the inside.
Jordan has drawn this picture in Kidpix to help us understand what the earth looks like.



The outer layer of the earth is known as the crust.

Under the crust is an intensely hot layer of dense rock called the mantle.

Inside this mantle lies the core, which is made up of an outer layer of liquid metal and a dense inner core of solid metal alloys.

The core is really hot, hotter than anything you know, it can be as high as 5000oC.

Heating and cooling that occurs in the core causes the magma from the mantle to rise near the surface of the earth. When it does force its way to the surface, it can cause earthquakes and form volcanoes.

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

OUR QUESTIONS

Room 8 have lots of questions about Volcanoes that
they want to find out the answers to.



We will find out our answers though doing some research over
the next few weeks. Some of the ways we will find out our answers are:

* listening to the teacher
* reading books about volcanoes
* using google to search for our answers and images of volcanoes
* using youtube to watch how volcanoes erupt and work
* speaking to be people who know about volcanoes
* read and listen to other Pt England students blogs to see and hear what they are learning about volcanoes
* watching school TV
* conduct experiments to help us understand how volcanoes work
* draw, create an animation and make a model to hep us understand how volcanoes work

We are going to have lots of fun learning . Please read and watch our upcoming posts and maybe you will learn something new too.

Room 8

ACTIVE EARTH















In term 2 our school will be learning about what
