Activities:

  1. For a more in-depth study of volcanoes, research some of the more famous volcanoes that have erupted in the past. When did they erupt? How devastating to the surrounding areas were they? What types of devastation did they cause? How often do these volcanoes erupt? How long do the eruptions last?
  2. This is week 4 of the experiment started in Lesson 3. Has your mound decreased any? What caused this decrease?
