Volcano Pop-ups

As part of our study of earth science, 3rd grade students do a variety of activities.  They make egg models of the layers of the earth, use Milky Way bars to demonstrate plate tectonics, make working volcano models and many other activities.  Today's activity was to make volcano pop-ups.  Students picked a type of volcano to study; shield, composite or cinder cone.  Then they illustrated a pop-up display and added facts about their type of volcano.  Look for the pop-ups along with the clay volcano models on Science Night!
