SUWANEE, GEORGIA – Riverwatch Middle School welcomed SparkPoint Innovations’ Big Canyon Balloon geology program for a day of geology fun! The 15′ tall canyon model filled the gym! Riverwatch 6th grade students joined Amy and Bailey for programs throughout the day as we solved the mysteries of the earth’s slow changes over time and discovered the secrets of the fossil tunnel.
Erosion and weathering were no problem for the Riverwatch Panthers! Students learned how the earth changes slowly over time -we’re not talking about tornadoes and earthquakes – we’re talking about those changes that take place over such a long period of time, you don’t even know they’re going on! We explored landforms and identified rocks, fossils, and minerals. Where would you find the oldest fossils when looking at rock layers? At the bottom, of course! Those layers were deposited there first! What’s that called? Superposition!
Thanks for sharing your students with us! SparkPoint Innovations had a blast with Rocky the Big Canyon Balloon at Riverwatch!
