Volcanoes are fascinating to kids and adults alike.Our four year old children wanted to learn more about the Volcanoes when Jamie brought a book about Volcanoes and two Volcano rocks from a beach. The whole week we’ve learnt about
*How volcanoes are formed?
*Why do Volcanoes erupt?
* What is lava?
*How many Volcanoes are there in New Zealand?
We also had conversations about the dinosaurs that lived around the “Jurassic Period” when Volcanoes were main part of the landscape. We’ve read the story, “Dazzle, the dinosaur” and interesting conversations emerged about the dinosaurs. We will be extending the children’s interest in dinosaurs and volcanoes by providing interesting child initiated first hand experiences.
