WALT: Describe a recent earthquake, it's effects and cause
Today we did a group reading about the Christchurch earthquake and my group learnt that it was a 6.3 magnitude earthquake and 185 people died. Earthquakes are caused by tectonic plate movements. We used sandwiches to model the plates and we spreaded jam under the bread to model as the mantel. I learnt when the tectonic plates rub against each other it starts a earthquake and the mantel rise in between and forms a new rock.
