Shake it up!!

Monday's Museum visit was an exciting day, we got to explore the World War I and II exhibit's the Land and Sea, Weird and Wonderful, Wild Child, Dinosaurs and most importantly the Volcanoes and Geology exhibit. The Volcano exhibit and the volcano room were really valuable to us because our inquiry topic this term is Shake it Up!! Where we are learning all about natural disasters such as earthquakes and volcanoes. 

We learned a lot about lava flows and different volcanic rock types, then practiced sorting them. 


In the Volcano house we watched a simulation video which explained a series of earthquakes and a new volcanoe that had erupted. The room then shook following an explosion and there was another video about the potential effects if there was to be a natural disaster right here in auckland. Our next steps are to learn how to be prepared if there is an earthquake or volcano. Stay tuned for more learning in this area!
