Lesson Plan - Get It!
When you think about it, volcanoes are strange and kind of scary! A water fountain is one thing, but a mountain spitting out melted rock is pretty wild and fascinating! You can make a (safe!) model of one if you read on!
Imagine that you are hiking up a mountain with your family.
Before you go farther on your hike, you notice that there are some bits of ash coming from the top of the mountain. You finally realize that you are hiking up a volcano! Terrified, you begin to run in the opposite direction, but your family stops you and tells you that you are okay because some volcanoes release ash all the time. That means you may not be in danger of hot lava releasing from the volcano. Relieved, you are very interested in learning more about what is inside — and sometimes outside — of a volcano.
- Did you know that lava — all that hot melted rock — helps to form volcanoes?
Let’s join Dr. Jo to see what she knows about volcanoes!
Hike on over to the Got It? section to create your model and dive deeper into volcanoes . . . oops . . . study them more closely from afar!
