Earth Works

On Friday we had an in class field trip when Kinetic Kathleen came to learn with us.  She brought a ton of really great tools. We learned about the earth.  Here are some photos of her visit.

Here we are learning about solar power. We used the light as the sun and it made the the spinner spin.

Here we are learning about water, and the water cycle. We were using our observation skills too.

This was a cool wind machine. It was part of the section of the visit when we learned about airl.

Next we learned about soil and the five components that make up sole.

We examined each part carefully.  

Then we made a soil mountain and added water to it to represent rain.

We saw the effects of water on the earth. We saw erosion.

Finally we met some worms and learned why we need warms in our soil too. Do you know why? It has to do with air.

It was a great way to spend part of Friday. We learned a ton and had a lot of fun learning too.
