In science we wrapped up creating our Conservation Postcards, which we will send to two 3rd grade classes on Monday. Next week we will begin discussing forces affecting Earth’s surface, including weathering, erosion, and deposition. Over Spring Break your student’s will be asked to take photos of any examples of WED (weathering, erosion, and/or deposition) they may identify.
