As the world turns

As an end-of-unit project, sixth-graders in teacher Marilou Fredenburg's science class at Ray Middle School created their interpretations of what a landscape would look like after one million years of weathering and erosion. As part of the task they had to draw a picture of a landscape as it looks today, then draw a picture of it as they believe it will look in 100 years. Using the information they learned regarding erosion and weathering, they used clay, cardboard, styrofoam and other materials to create models of what their landscapes will most likely look like in one million years. Tiler Flores shows his classmates the model he created of a landscape as he believes it will look in one million years.
