After School Club at Cook Elementary

This week, girls from Cook Elementary sifted through sand as they explored sand dunes! The ladies experimented with wind patterns to create a few different types of sand dunes, and even got to create their own masterpieces by blowing pictures into the sand! Once they had a firm grasp on how sand dunes are formed, they discussed the significance of sand dunes around cities, and brainstormed the pros and cons of trying to build structures to stop a sand dune from damaging a city. Check out the awesome pictures from this week’s lesson!

Look, no hands!

Girls created different types of sand dunes by experimenting with wind direction and strength.
