Welcome To Miami - 05/12/19
The main focus this half term was based on earthquakes and volcanoes. We chose Miami to visit due to its proximity to a fault line, and fairly recent history of natural disasters.
We used our computing lessons to reasearch what causes a volcano, and the different forms of volcanoes, We learned some key vocabulary on the way, such as composite volcanoes.
We then looked at what causes an earthquake and some of the key geographical term researchers use to describe the impact they have on the earth's surface.
Finally, we came home to London so that we could read a map and use appropriate scales to measure the distance between locations and features.
