MIU 4 Earth Systems

Dear Parents,

We have just finished the Rock Cycle and Water Cycle portions of MIU 4 EArth Systems. Some students chose to aim high and go for the gold of an exemplary score on their benchmark by creating a model and explanation of how the water cycle works. With only three days these students and many more created superb models and explanations to go with them earning the highest score possible on this benchmark. Way to go students!!! Our next benchmark will be an explanation of how ocean currents are created by differences in density, unequal heating of the planet and the Earth's rotation creating wind driven currents that keep our planet stable.
