Dear Parents and Students,
Our Science classes will be viewing and analyzing the science content of Journey to the Center of the Earth (rated PG) after completing our studies of earthquakes, plate tectonics, and volcanoes. Students will apply what they have learned in class to prove whether or not the topics presented in the movie are scientifically correct or have been “made for the movie” itself leading us into discussion judging whether information we are presented is always accurate.
As time permits, we will also view Journey 2: The Mysterious Island—also rated PG. Students will experience how longitude and latitude are used to locate the island. Students will also use skills acquired this school year to determine true and exaggerated facts thus determining what movie ideas could potentially occur.
