Grade 10 Geography outing

On Tuesday the 4th of February the grade 10 Geography girls went on an outing to Lonehill, the Botanical Gardens and Broederstroom.

We are busy studying Geomorphology in class, so in Lonehill we looked at the tor. It was formed under the ground and after thousands of years the land around it has eroded, leaving behind the more resistant rocks that make up the hill. It was very interesting to see the real examples of different types of rocks, instead of just pictures of them.

We then moved on to the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens where we were surrounded by huge mountains of sedimentary rocks. We walked through the timeline of the evolution of rocks and examined the stunning waterfall, which was fascinating.

Lunch time at “The home of the Chicken Pie” was delicious and we all stocked up on snacks for the ride home.

After our last stop in Broederstroom to observe dolomite rocks on the side of the road, that were tilted when the Bushveld Igneous Complex intruded, we were rewarded with a stop for a delicious Wakaberry on the way home.

Thank you to Mr and Mrs Auchterlonie for an exciting, enjoyable and educational outing!
