Where is the Grand Canyon
The Truth is...
The truth is that no-one knows how the Grand Canyon was formed not even scientists! But they have a theory on how it was formed
The Theory
All of Earth's oceans and Continents are on top of massive pieces of Earth called plates and they fit together like a jigsaw puzzle .80,000,000 years ago 2 of these plates collided at the west coast of North America. The pacific plate slid under the North American plate creating a rocky Mountain lifting up the Whole Colorado plateau which now continuously "carves" into the river
Rock Layers of the Grand Canyon
Fun facts about the Grand Canyon
- Around 900 years ago the Pueblo people in the Hopi tribe lived in the Grand Canyon
- The grand is 18 miles wide, that's large enough to fit Manhattan length wise and is as tall as 3 Empire state buildings stacked on top of each other
- Each layer of the grand canyon is a different colour even though it appears red.
