Model Earths

In an effort to understand plate tectonics and their role in earthquakes, students built model earths this week from salt dough. We layered red (core), orange (mantle), yellow (crust) and blue/green (oceans/continents). We then cut our models in half to get a view of the insides of our “earths”.

This is my seventh year as a primary classroom teacher. I have also been a long-term substitute, a special education teaching assistant and an english preschool teacher in Prague.

Outside of teaching, my passions are traveling, trying new restaurants, strong coffee, being with friends and family, and enjoying the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge.

I love being a Corbett teacher!
