Today my classmates and I went to Burke Museum.
This place focuses on environmental issues and it has three wonderful sections and some of them are interactive. Personally, I liked the animals’ life, for example there was a crab that was found in Hoko River, Washington and its age 40 million years ago. It was amazing when I read about the effects on these animals and all those organisms that would survive to salt water and ash from volcanoes because those animals and organisms were buried.
Burke Museum has many things to share with. I realized about their traditions, for instance first voices were brought from the Pacific and sounds appeared so Lushootseed is a kind of tribe or community that was rescued and they were the first native speakers with songs.
There are many things to enjoy and of course, my task was “ Iceberg”. It was really interesting because I could see that when glaciers melt they became in channels of Puget sounds and they created lakes. The material deposited by them is called glacial drift. Much of Seattle is built a top loose glacial drift and then developed the civilization.
Finally, these glaciers advanced and retrated for nearly 2 million years and of course this changed the landscape but it has been beautiful too with the buildings and the sightseeing in its surroundings.
