Modelling Earthquakes

The Year 6 classes are learning about earthquakes using factual texts and models. They have been learning to recognise what they can learn through models but also that models cannot show everything. Today we discussed how a boiled egg can be used to model the layers of the earth. We followed this with making plasticine models of different movements of the tectonic plates.
