Previously, we shared the initial versions of some of our scientific models. Now we have gone through the process of improving them to bring you these final versions! We worked in groups and we were able to choose the best way to share our model: pictures or videos. All of us tried to show convergent and divergent movement, and we all succeeded in that way. However, showing how this causes mountains to form and earthquakes was much more difficult! You can see that these models are definitely more accurate than our first attempts, because we self-assessed our first models informally to determine whether they met the criteria of movement and showing how the resulting phenomena form. We learned that taking a second (or a third!) look at something can really help us see the issues and, therefore, help us improve our understanding. These are some of our final products. Enjoy!
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
