If you had wandered into any of the second grade rooms last Friday afternoon, you may have witnessed some messy fingers, some spilled glitter, and the overwhelming stench of vinegar. In the midst of the mess and chaos were many smiles and bright eyes as the students created and erupted their own volcanoes!
For the last week, we have spent some time studying these massive land forms and learning about how they are created and what it takes for one to erupt. They were even able to experiment with different levels of gas pressure and lava thickness to predict how each of these factors would affect an eruption. The creation of their own “working” volcano was the icing on the cake to a great week of explosions!
