Our Topic this term is...
"Misty Mountains"

Mighty mountains peak above the morning mists, imposing and eternal, rocky outcrops at their feet.

Discover how these giants are formed, as a fold or a block, a dome? or a plateau.

Follow the water cycle's course from peak to valley and meet the exceptional tribes of the hostile Himalayas. Then plan a mountain expedition from the BMC that is eco-friendly and as safe as can be. But look out. What's that by that tree? Its footprints are huge. Have we found the Yeti?!
