Today, we were investigating how mountains are formed.

First, we rolled our marla into balls and flattened it to create the Earth's crust. Next, in our partners, we crashed them together to see what time of mountains are formed when this happens. Some of them folded into Fold Mountains and some into Block Mountains. 

After we created volcanoes. First we made a hole where the lava comes through. Then, the lava came out and settled around the hole. Next, the lava erupted again and settled around the hole. This was repeated until it looked cone-shaped and these are photos of our volcanoes.
