Our curious little ones brought the interest in volcanoes . We seized the magnificent learning moments throughout the learning journey started from simple baking soda and vinegar experiment to the Pacific Ring of Fire. We introduce the concept of tectonic plates to the children first and highlighted the fact that volcanoes are mostly formed at the boundaries where 2 plates meet and the Ring of Fire is located around the edges of the Pacific plate. We continued learning  by explaining the vocabulary brought up in during various  steps i.e.

What is lava?

Where does lava come from?

What is a pumice rock?

What is an earthquake?

What are active volcanoes? 

What happens when volcanoes become no longer active?
