Seismic Activity

After A Tsunami

The damages after tsunami's hit it can be very fatal many lives will be lost. All the buildings would be demolished and survivors trapped under rubble. Cars just have been tossed like little toys.

Volcano's formed

Volcanoes are formed by all the lava, that comes through cracks in the ground.Magma under the ground heat’s up, and goes through cracks in the earth. When the lava dries it forms land and volcano's!!

Types Of Volcano's

There are 3 Types of volcano's There is the Shield Volcano, which is are mostly active and dormant. An there is the Cinder Cone volcano which are most dormant now. So that leaves us with the composite volcano it is the most dangerous or is it?

Inside The Earth

Under the earth crust there are 4 layers,the crust,mantle,Outer core,Inner core.There are fractures in the earth crust like a huge jigsaw puzzle that has been put back together in big chunks

The Earth's Jigsaw Puzzle

Hello my name is Kayla and I'm going to tell you what we have been learning.
Ms Crowther showed us that the world is one big jigsaw puzzle. The swirling currents in the mantle (shown in our experiment), are so powerful, that they have made cracks in the earth's crust. These cracks mean the world, with all it's countries, is broken into plates. These plates float on the mantle, and are constantly moving.
Millions of years ago our land formed one big continent. Slowly the land broke apart to look like it does today.

Visit To Tamaki Collage for PE

As I gasped for breathe, my skeleton sustained injuries, hipnotizing me into thinking my bones were going to fracture time and time again . The mortal like game that we were particapating in was code named octopus. The aim of the octopus is to sprint as fast as you can all the way to the other side of the court. Obviously I didnt make it, and because I didnt make it I had to suffer the consequences of being in.But the only thing about being in is you have to sit down and try to touch someone while skittling along the ground.
