Earth Science Starting the Semester with a Blast

Earth Science class is finishing up their unit on volcanoes. In addition to the articles they are reading about careers in science, students have been conducting some fun labs. In particular students enjoyed simulating an explosive volcanic eruption, learning about variables that affect volcanic eruptions, and also spending time learning about volcanoes through Google Earth.

As we move on with other units we will continue to focus on our science fair projects, careers in science, and we will try to do labs as often as possible. Since we have our overnight trip next week we will probably not be in the lab for another 2 weeks.

Looks like your students are having a real "blast!" I'm glad things are going well.
