Students embark on a creative movement and visual art exploration into the wonders of our ever-changing planet. Through analyzing images, physical embodiment of a geologically themed story, and tangram picture making, students begin to learn how the earth is in constant flux. Students explore the fast and slow changes, rocks forming and eroding, and the role of water in those changes.
