Earth Patterns

School Year: 
Fourth Grade

How has the area we live in been shaped over time? How do geologists interpret patterns in what they see? How do we know that the Genesee River is going to keep changing? Through-out the next twelve weeks the fourth grade class will investigate these questions as they travel to the source of the Genesee River and follow the river to its mouth in Charlotte. Through that field study and others, the class will investigate the geology along the river and how it has changed throughout time. The class will work together to use poetry and the arts to make the Genesee River and its geology come alive.
