With what is going on in Iceland the grown-ups in the house asked if the kids would be learning about it. I was already on it. I finished last night a small unit study on volcanoes. There first bit is mostly info, pics and links. I have links to videos on you tube, a quiz page and to news sites for following the latest on the volcano. I also have pages for recording what is happening as well as writing bout the bigger stories. So it will be more of a current events project in the end...which is good. We talked today about volcanic winter. Maybe I should have included more on this as they were very interested. Or maybe we will follow up with a unit about volcanic winter and similar meteorological events. There is of course the baking soda volcano. I'll post pics as soon as we do it. We took bit of a walk to register Ko-KO for her gymnastics Gala. On the way back we stopped for fries. I'm including a pic of Ko-Ko climbing a stop sign on the way home (she's a bit of a monkey) and a link to our volcano unit. One link direct to the PDF and one to the website where I keep all the links to my PDF files.
