This morning I have been learning how to take core samples. We took samples from a cupcake and guessed what the core (inside) looked like. In real life geologist take samples of whats under the land.

Hello my name is Sateki this photo about me and the cupcake. We are learning about core samples. Everybody had are straw and a cupcake. We had to poke the straw in the cupcake and we pulled the straw out of it. We had to color what we though the inside would look like. Then Miss Ouano cut it in half and we had to see if we were right.
