Volcanoes! (FREE Picture Cards!)

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

My son's class worked on volcanoes a few weeks ago.  They talked about Mt. Vesuvius and watched videos of the eruption.  During their circle time they made a volcano and made it erupt.  He can’t stop talking about it for days!

Anyway, he was begging me to do it at home so I just have to give in.  

But first we looked at pictures of volcanoes around the world and talked about “active” volcanoes.  (Click the picture to download)

Then we worked on the parts of the volcano, which he was familiar already (thanks to Montessori school!).

And to conclude our activity we made a volcano using a spice bottle, some plasticine, foil and the volcano recipes. My son added Astronaut figures LOL.

Look at the mess! It’s a good thing I contained them in a tray :)
