This year I have let R do interest-led Science. She has the ability to learn whatever she wants as long as she is able to prove to me that she is really learning. For her first pick, she chose volcanoes. Below are some of the great things she did for her volcano project, a free printable, and a list of great resources for you to work on volcanoes with your kids. These are very simple and fun to work with.
Free Volcano Printables and More!
R really enjoyed this lesson. She spent a lot of time learning about volcanoes. I may have even shown her the Pompeii episode of Doctor Who just for fun. She made the volcano below and you can find out how to make it as part of the printable pack mentioned below the image.
I put together a printable pack for my daughter to work through and I am glad to share it with you for free.
Items in the printable pack (Linked at bottom of post) include:
