See you there!
Second graders have been busy learning about the powerful force of water and how it shapes the surface of the Earth. In this week's experiment, students made model landforms out of cornmeal and dripped water over their "land" to observe how canyons can be formed over long periods of time. In our next lesson students will become engineers to come up with solutions for preventing erosion.
We’re beginning learning about forces in motion!
