Advent 2 - Tremors

What happens when the Earth shakes?

In this project, we’ll find out about the dangerous world of natural disasters and their deadly effects. This half term we’ll look at rock samples, find out about different types of rocks and sort them according to their properties. By carrying out research, we’ll investigate the Earth’s layers and the location of volcanoes, discovering what causes them to erupt. We’ll write powerful poetry inspired by our work on volcanoes. Working as archaeologists, we’ll locate Mount Vesuvius on a map and find out what it was like to live in Pompeii during the eruption. We’ll also use different modelling materials to create a volcano – watch out, it’s going to blow!
