Volcano studies with the kids = FUN!!

Working Together.

The final creation.

Mt. Pinkihuma (as named by Ellie)
Helpful Websites:
Virtual Volcanoes. You get to create and erupt your own volcano! This one is so cool!
Volcanoes on Video. The Discovery Channel has a nice variety of different volcano-related videos.
Virtual Supervolcano See what lies beneath Yellowstone National Park.
Here are directions on how to make your own Baking Soda Volcano. These are the instructions we used in making our volcano today.

Here are some of the resources we are using during our studies:
