A summary of Changes to the Earth:
There are 4 explorers who are each an expert on a certain type of change that happens in the Earth. Each explorer has a student who follows them around and learns about the changes. The changes actually happen in front of the explorer and students, the rest of the students create it. For example, during the landslide change this is what happens:
One LANDSLIDE kid at the back of the group bumps into someone else and then they all run across randomly and continue to bump into things. When they finally come to a stop there are LANDSLIDE kids all over, some can even be in the audience.
