Changes to the Earth’s Surface – Grade 4 Science

image08Mrs. Daugherty’s 4th grade science class performed an experiment today. They were working to observe the changes that occur to the earth’s surface as a glacier slowly travels over it as well as what is left behind when it melts. The students noticed scratches and trails in the surface, along with piles of sediment (moraines) and the formation of “lakes.” CLICK HERE TO VIEW A SLIDESHOW FROM TODAY’S EXPERIMENT.
