  • 2. Resource and Plan
    • The resource for this project is a lesson plan.
    • 3. This lesson plan will let students K-2 learn about volcanoes through making a volcano model.
  • Materials Needed
    • Clay or PlayDough
    • 4. Volcano 1 Student Sheet
    • 5. Volcano 2 Student Sheet
    • 6. Baking Soda and Vinegar
  • Motivation
    • Show Photographs.
    • 7. Discuss how volcanoes contain "hot liquid" inside called Magma.
    • 8. Describe how fast magma comes out of the volcano and that this scenario is called an eruption.
  • Visual and Auditory
    • Show children locations of the "ring of fire."
    • 9. Show clips of erupting volcanoes.
    • 10. Showing children clips of erupting volcanoes can help children with the concept of volcanoes and eruption.
  • Development
    • Students will make volcanoes in small groups.
    • 11. Students working in small groups can facilitate extended discussion about volcanoes.
    • 12. Discussions can lead to more questions to be asked by students.
    • 13. Provide other materials so children can become more creative and develop problem-solving skills.
  • Observations
    • Volcano 1 student sheet will be used to draw pictures or write words to describe their volcanoes.
    • 14. Provide students with string to measure volcanoes and use the measurement to compare before and after eruption.
    • 15. Students will erupt volcanoes with baking soda and vinegar.
    • 16. Students will compare and contrat his or her volcano to the pictures and videos seen in the beginning of the lesson.
  • Assessment
    • Volcano 2 student sheet will be used for documenting the changes students have observed.
    • 17. Students can draw or write questions made in discussions.
    • 18. Students can then write a story about volcanoes.
  • End of Lesson
    • Students should be able to describe their volcano models and how they made them.
    • 19. Communicate their observations to another person.
    • 20. Understand how their models changed after eruption.
    • 21. Ask questions about volcanoes.
