Ms. Lois Terry’s 9th grade Geography class has been studying the effect of plate tectonics on the geography of the world.  As an assessment to see if her students learned the concepts that they studied about during their internal and external forces unit, students have been creating Forces Videos. 

Ms. Terry explained, “We learned about Plate Tectonics and the External and Internal forces that shape our Earth's geography and then the students worked in groups to make videos showing what they learned.  I will be grading them and then showing them to the classes. This is their final project of the unit.”

Digging deeper—that’s what learning is all about here at Spanish Fork Junior High.  Great job, Ms. Terry.
