SOLE Presentations

A couple of weeks ago, Miss Fraser tried to trick us and told us that all of the continents in the world were formed by one man digging a lot of big holes and filling them with water. She said that even though the land was once connected, it is now separated ย by water because of this man digging holes.

We knew Miss Fraser wasn’t right. But could we prove her wrong? How?

We had a couple of sessions to research and then share our learning with the class. We found out that;

  • Earth is a rock planet
  • There was something called a “continental drift”
  • There was once a large land mass called Pangea – also known as the “supercontinent”
  • As magma below the Earth’s crust moves and circulates, it causes the shift of tectonic plates. As the plates move, so too do the continents on top of the plates
  • Pangea began forming about 300 million years ago, was fully together by 270 million years ago and began to separate around 200 million years ago


**Miss Fraser is extremely proud of our researching skills and finding information all by ourselves (with the help of our partners and other class members.)**

We can’t wait to do another SOLE activity!


What did you find out from your SOLE research? Do you think you could prove Miss Fraser wrong? What was the best part of learning SOLE style?

  22. Hi from Mitch’s Dad writing from Sydney International Airport on my way to Shanghai, China.

    I will try and post a blog from China if they let me. In China the government controls a lot of the social media so you can not use certain websites in China, for example “Facebook”.

    I am going to be eating a lot of authentic Chinese Food this week, yummo ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a great week everyone.

    Best regards

  23. Good morning,

    This morning I am blogging from Incheon, South Korea while I have my breakfast. The time here is 7:53 am, South Korea is only one behind Melbourne Time.

    The total population in South Korea is 49 million. It has more than twice the population of Australia.

    South Korea is a very well developed country and economy. Samsung, LG, Hyundai and Kea are big South Korea Companies.

    Also the lattes are excellent here.

    Have a nice day,

    Rod (Mitch’s Dad)

    • Dear Rod,
      Thanks for leaving such a great quality comment on our blog. We love seeing all your comments from all over the world! Miss Fraser would love to try a South Korean latte. Mitch would like you to send a latte to everyone in the class please. (Extra for Miss Fraser!)
      Thank you for those facts on South Korea. We have been looking at different continents and countries as we study the Earth. We think that it is amazing that South Korea has twice the population of Australia!
      Are you very busy with your work over there?
      From 3/4D ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Hello from Seoul, South Korea
    Today I am in Seoul the capital of South Korea. The population of Seoul is 10 million.

    It is is summer here and the temperature is around 30 degrees C.

    I like to eat the local Korean Food when I am here. Yesterday for lunch I had Sam Kye Tang (Chicken Gingsing Soup) it is very nutritious and tasty.

    Yes it has been busy Miss Fraser. My job is to manage a team of Sales People in Asia Pacific and also to sell directly myself. We sell temperature recording devices to the Pharmaceutical Industry so that they can monitor the temperature of their temperature sensitive drugs and vaccines while they are being stored and transported around the world. South Korea is a large up and coming country in terms of Biopharmaceutical manufacturing and our business is growing here.

    I am also travelling with one of my colleagues from Boston, USA. We are at a Customer Seminar this afternoon to educate them on the European Pharmaceutical Regulations called EU-GDP. GDP stands for Good Distribution Practice.

    Have a great day everyone, Rod (Mitch’s Dad)

  25. Hi everyone from 3/4D, and hello to my husband Rod!!! Well done on these great facts. Can you students see where Korea is on the map?

    I love learning about places, and try and show Mitch and his brother and sisters where countries their daddy visits are on our globe at home, as well as the capital cities of these countries.

    Where will Rod be next???

    Karen (Mitch’s mum) ๐Ÿ™‚
