Miss Ledingham's class has also been studying earthquakes.  We learned about tectonic plates and how they move and change the earth's surface.  If they move towards each other they form a mountain.  We also learned that when the plates rub against each other buildings can fall.  And if they separate a rift is created in the ground.  After we learned about what causes earthquakes we made cakes that we quaked them in four different ways.  It was very fun!!
