Recently we studied an annual favorite- volcanoes!  The children enjoy having a chance to have hands-on interaction with the small volcano model.  Some of the afternoon children make their own models to take home.

The children watched a small group lesson on how to erupt the small volcano on their own.

After learning how to do it, they could explore on their own.

First step is to add the baking soda.

Some older children chose to learn more about the ring of fire.  It is always fun to see how the ring of fire spreads over several continents.
