Second graders at Tower are elbow deep in dirt this week as we investigate the causes of erosion in STEM class. Students are using the scientific inquiry process to determine if wind, earthquakes, glaciers (ice), and/or water cause the most erosion. We will use this knowledge to develop an action plan to create a fictional community and design it to have little to no erosion; thus, protecting our fictional community citizens.
