Volcanic Activity in Year 6!

You may have heard the rumblings from the Year 6 classroom… Was it a volcano?

Sort of. Our students have been busy learning about the geological changes and effects on the earth as a result of earthquakes and volcanoes.  In order to truly understand the structural makeup of a volcano and its many elements, students have been actively seeking out the answers and constructing their very own paper-mache volcanoes.

In addition to this hands-on and messy activity, the students have enjoyed writing a newspaper report about a fictional earthquake.

Take a look at some of our progress shots… some of these volcanoes are cones and some are stratovolcanoes!
