EARTHQUAKE!

Here students push together two graham crackers, moistened with water where they meet. This investigation showed us how we can see fault lines on the earth’s surface, and how new structures can form (mountains, hills).

Students built solid structures from marshmallows and spaghetti. We then placed our structures on a tray of jell-o that was shaken for fifteen seconds. Only one collapsed. We have some good builders!

We have so enjoyed our mountains, earthquakes and volcanoes unit!

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!
