This term, 3rd Class have been extremely busy putting together Volcano Projects. This is part of our HSIE topic. Children have been given free range to create a presentation in which they must include lots of different information and facts about volcanoes. Children have also had the opportunity to make their very own erupting volcanoes which has been both messy and lots of fun! We haven t quite got to the erupting part but very close to finishing our models, then the real excitement can happen.
The children have been so engaged in these projects. It has been wonderful to see the children co-operating, compromising and learning from one another. It has been a very successful project in many ways and a great way for some to extend themselves and be creative.
Here are some photos that will give you a sneaky peak of what we have been doing:
