We have continued our Geography work on Natural Disasters this week. Today we looked at how the Earth's crust is made up of lots of tectonic plates - rather like a large jigsaw puzzle.
We cut up the areas that have tectonic plates running through them and then tried to put the puzzle back together again.
Then we investigated how tectonic plates move and the effect this has on the Earth. We used oreo biscuits to help us! The cream in the middle represents the mantle and the top biscuit is the crust. We broke our crust into 2 pieces and then we moved them in different ways. We learnt that movement can be classified as divergent, convergent and transform.
Then we got to eat the biscuits...
