Product Description
Take the children to the centre of the Earth! Be the Miss Frizz of your classroom with this IB PYP inquiry. How the World Works: The Earth’s surface is constantly moving and changing through processes and forces.
This is a mini unit about the amazing moving and shaking of our Earth’s surface as we explore the science behind plate tectonics and how the processes under the Earth lead to the movement and changing of our world as we know it. Go back 200 million years and explore Pangaea and make the connections between the world then and now..With over 60 pages of interactive, foldables, flippables, hands on , engaging, inquiry based activities, this transdisciplinary unit will take you through math, critical thinking, writing, geography, reading for information and, of course, science. UK & USA spelling included.

Lines of inquiry include:
How is the Earth structured?
How is the Earth’s crust formed?
How does our world today connect with the supercontinents?
How does the Earth’s crust move and separate?

Learning how to read clues from artefacts and also from evidence in the text, helped us to become incredible geologists as we had to figure out the answers to our lines of inquiry. This involved a lot of reading for information, analysing text and recognising non fiction text features.

Through explorations within math, reading, writing, geography and history, the children gather knowledge of how plate tectonics contribute to how our world is shaped today. This mini unit can be found within my complete unit of inquiry that delves further into landforms and natural disasters as well: Earth’s Structures and Landforms, found in my store and on my blog.
If you enjoy this complete unit of inquiry, you may also like my others: Ancient Civilizations, Rainforests and Food Chains, Adaptations of Living Things, Exploring Poetry, Exploring Explorers and many more found in my store.
Enjoy!
