Bricks 4 Kidz - Fasten your seatbelts; we’re in for some wild weather!  This unit is all about the amazing and powerful forces of nature, as students explore the when, where, how and why of all kinds of natural phenomenon.  There is a lot of geography in this unit – we’ll examine a map of the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where most tsunamis occur, view a diagram of the tectonic plates and learn how their movement creates earthquakes, define the are known as “Tornado Alley’” in North America, and find out what hurricanes are called in different parts of the world.  These lessons are designed to improve your child’s understanding of the forces of nature, while taking care not to alarm.  Each model represents the motion of that particular weather or event, with a seat for a mini-figure to take in the action!  Take cover because we’re about to take a trip through some wild weather!  Kids will love to build moving models of a tornado, tsunami, an earthquake and a cyclone. Learn how they move, why they happen and what you can do to stay safe! Class Min 8/Max 20.
