Year 8 have been learning about Earth, one of the ten big powerful ideas in Science. This unit includes the structure of the Earth, weathering, the different types of rocks and how they are formed. To understand how they are linked together, students studied the rock cycle in a variety of ways from video, to focusing on keywords to completing diagrams. They also researched some uses of the types of rocks, as well as the rock cycle itself. The students enjoyed this topic and a display of all their excellent work was made .
