Fourth-graders in Katie Saxer’s class at Forest Avenue Elementary School recently conducted an experiment to study what happens to the earth’s crust during an earthquake. The students used the scientific method – asking questions, constructing hypotheses, analyzing data, and drawing conclusions – to determine how the movement of tectonic plates impact fault lines, changing earth’s landforms.
