We have also been learning about wind and waves. Did you know waves are formed in two ways? Most waves are wind waves but there are also waves that form when earthquakes or underwater landslides occur beneath the ocean. These waves are called seismic waves and can be very dangerous. A seismic wave is also called a Tsunami. You can learn more about Tsunamis by watching this great video.
After we learned about Tsunamis we made these cool diagrams so we could explain what a tsunami is to our parents. Next we will be learning about the Water Cycle and the oceans important roll in this incredible process.
