Make 2014/2015 your strongest Earth Science year EVER!
This month’s feature:
Our students love earth science! I think that the fascination comes from both the unique beauty that is part of that study, and also the magnitude of force that continues to create the surface. In our Montessori lessons, we strive to create BIG impressions that will inspire students to look further into a related area of study.
One of the best ways I know to trigger a child’s memory of a lesson is to include food. This month’s lesson does just that, while learning about transform faults. This lesson is always a hit, but it took on particular interest when we were looking forward to a week in San Francisco.
I always have several tectonic maps available during the lesson, so students can see real life examples of where the particular type of fault or subduction is taking place.
These mini lessons are fun, but they also lead children to ask more questions. By looking at the map, children can find all the volcanoes in the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” more inspiration for learning. They begin to wonder about the different ways the plates are coming together or moving apart...so much food for thought.
Be sure to use a chocolate frosting, or tinted black, for making the “road” extra realistic. If you can accompany your lesson with photos from recent quakes that show the result of their power, all the better. Enjoy!
Feathered Dinosaurs Commonplace?
Siberian discovery suggests feathered dinosaurs may have been more common than previously suspected.
