May 5th: Volcanoes!

04. Lavaflow_sampling_2Joe and Sarah have been in today investigating volcanoes with Year 4.

You’ll have dribbled honey down slopes and – let’s admit it – left some of that honey on our samples of volcanic rocks with your sticky fingers. So tomorrow, Sarah will be washing rocks in the Think Lab sink. Not to worry.

For a reminder of what you studied, and some activities to continue your exploring at home, see our Volcano Workshop page.

Joe’s been in today with a big old bag of rocks. No, I’m sorry, I misread his diary: he’s been in with a big bag of old rocks.

Want to know more about meteorites? We’ve a page of information about the rocks you saw today over here. Tell your parents which meteorites you saw and handled, and find out what makes them important, unusual, or interesting.
