In grade two, the second trimester of Cultural History begins with an in-depth study of Earth Systems. Students explore the creation of the Earth and the forces that shape and continue to transform the planet. They examine the inner and outer structure of the Earth, the theory of plate tectonics, and the forces behind this phenomenon. Students create a movie to document their discoveries, integrating Science, Library Science, Art, Technology and Cultural History. Students are asked why and how earth systems change and discover that the Earth is never still.
