Eruptions in 4th grade

Picture of students watching demostration

Students in 4th grade have been learning some valuable information about our planet Earth.  They had to locate each of the seven continents and the four oceans on a map.  They learned about map skills—-compass rose, scale, legend, latitude lines, longitude lines, etc.  They have also been viewing videos and lessons about volcanoes.  During this time, Mrs. April Fowler has conducted numerous volcano experiments with the classes.  She brought a model of the Earth and reviewed the seven continents and the four oceans with the students.  She also talked about the different types of volcanoes giving descriptions of each….composite, cinder, shield.  She demonstrated a cinder volcano using baking soda and vinegar.  She also demonstrated a composite volcano using Diet Coke and Mentos.  The students really enjoyed these experiments, especially when she gave them Pop Rocks to experience an eruption in their mouth!
