|Each child made a volcano out of clay.|
|We erupted a volcano in the sandbox with|
dinosaurs looking on...
|We erupted a volcano in class and discussed the vinegar|
being the acid and the baking soda being the base and
when the two combine you get a reaction. Choruses of,
"Again, again!" were heard.
|After the clay was dry each child painted his/her volcano.|
|We used sponges in dinosaur shapes to do some sponge painting.|
|Each child added colored vinegar to the backing soda filled|
volcano to erupt his/her own volcano and then were able
to take the volcano home with directions of how to
repeat the activity with his/her parents.
|After learning about herbivores and carnivores|
we played the game "What's for Lunch?" The
kids took a piece of the play food and put it
in the appropriate basket.
|Nothing but meat for this guy.|
|We celebrated our T-Rex day with clothing and toys.|
We've completed our first week with our Dinosaur unit and I believe it has definitely earned it's name: "Volcanoes and Dinosaurs and Summer, Oh My!!"
