Week of October 13th

This week’s learning targets:

  • Explain convection currents are the result of uneven heating inside the mantle resulting in the melting of rock materials, convection of magma, eruption/flow of magma, and movement of crustal plates

This week, we will kick off unit 3 by learning about the structure of the earth. We will also learn about the magma within the mantle and how it flows as a result of convection currents. Students will get a textbook this week.

For an upcoming science activity, I need two milky way fun size candy bars per student. If you can help by sending in a bag of milky way fun size (not mini) candy bars, I would greatly appreciate it!

Have a great week! 🙂
