Flyers 2 -Senri Yamada School-

To finish off our unit on disasters, we did a special lesson about the surface of Earth and how it causes earthquakes and volcanoes. We looked for places on the globe where we know that they happen and thought about why they happen there.


The children from Flyers 1 class, who were studying the same topic, joined us for an experiment where we made a mock volcanic eruption using vinegar, baking soda and food coloring. We learned the words for the different parts of a volcano, such as magma, crater and lava.


Finally, in our computer time, we looked for maps of where earthquakes happen around the world, and used that information to find out where the lines between the plates are.
