PORTLAND, TEXAS – Nick from SparkPoint Innovations had a blast with students at T.M. Clark Elementary School with Rocky the Big Canyon Balloon.
Why do we call him Rocky? Well, take a look at those sedimentary rock layers! Did you know his rock layers even extend behind the waterfall just waiting to be weathered and eroded away?

Speaking of erosion, a shout out to all of the students today who participating in the “Break, Move, Drop” song – you guys are rock stars! Can you share with your families the song that helps you remember what Weathering, Erosion and Deposition mean?

It was so fun to be in Portland! Since it’s by the coast, it was so great to see so many wind generators and oil refineries – goes right along with our lessons on forces that cause erosion and non-renewable resources! 

We enjoyed teaching  grade level programs throughout your school day last week – we know the teachers loved having warm up day! Thank you to the teachers who helped with the program, Janine People for organizing, and the PTO for funding our program. Thanks for having us out to your school today! Hope to see you again in the future!
