Class Experience

Students will learn why and where volcanoes form, how the different types of volcanoes erupt, what the different types of lavas are, plus about some of the rocks that lava can turn in to!
I am offering this class because I am experienced at teaching children about earth science topics. I have had a lifelong passion for geology, ever since I was growing up in the Rocky Mountains and won my third grade science fair project with a rock cycle experiment!
A variety of optional craft projects will be provided for before, during, or after class. Learners may choose the project that is the right fit for them depending on interest and available supplies. Please check the classroom for detailed instructions about project. Print-outs will be attached to classroom posts. Day 1: WORLD VOLCANOES BINGO Materials: ~printable Bingo card ~coins or small stones or paperclips to use as markers Alternative: generate an online fillable card on a different device or window at this link: Day 2: ERUPT A VOLCANO (Please build your volcano before class for in-class eruptions) Materials: ~Empty plastic water bottle, yogurt cup, small jar, etc. ~3 tablespoons baking soda ~A few drops of dish soap ~A few drops of red food coloring or red paint ~1/2 cup white vinegar ~Construction paper ~Scissors ~Stapler ~Tray, baking dish, or dish tub to set the volcano in.
