4th Grade Virtual Field Trips

By Francis Carlier

In 4th grade, the students have learned about forces of nature that affect the surface of the Earth through erosion, weathering, and deposition. These forces (wind, water, gravity, ice) can create landforms over time. Bryce Canyon, in Utah, is one of those landforms. The students were able to talk live to a National Park Ranger from Bryce Canyon to learn how its infamous Hoodoos were created and how the land was originally a humid lake environment. They also were treated to a mini geology lesson with an experiment with Bryce Canyon in the background covered in snow.
