Through the Skype a Scientist Program, Ms. Blackmon and Mrs. Loggins' classes were matched with Elizabeth King, a geologist from Boston. She discussed her profession and her experiences with studying the Earth and its different systems. This was a great way to wrap up their unit over Constructive and Deconstructive Forces. The students were able to ask her questions and really enjoyed hearing about her experiences. She shared with them about traveling to Hawaii to study the soil and rocks, and how she saw a volcano. What a great experience for our 5th grade students!
