Our Changing Earth Incursion

Today the Middles investigated and explored how nature changes the Earth through  the natural processes of weathering and erosion. They also explored the ‘rock cycle’ and classified samples of sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks. They observed the effects of chemical weathering through a variety of experiments. What a wonderful way to get us thinking about our inquiry unit.

    Nice to see children focussed and listening carefully to understand the way earth is changing and the reasons behind why this might be happening

    I liked the changing the earth incursion because we got to do experiments.My favourite experiment was the eggshell in vinegar because the eggshell turned solid.
