On Monday afternoon following our visit to Condover we found we had a delivery of lots of information that had been spread around the room. Our teachers could make no sense of it so we tried hard to make the links. While we were trying to find connections between the different parts of information an alarm sounded and we received a message from a Professor Mitch. He had heard that we worked well as a team during Condover week and so he needs our help to rescue him and his team. They had been studying volcanic action somewhere in the world but his communication system broke down before he could tell us where. We have decided to become experts on volcanoes and form a volcano rescue team.
We developed an action plan to help us become an effective team, maybe you could look some of these things up at home:-
a/Research volcanoes- Are there different types? What do they look like? What are the different parts?
b/How does a volcano erupt? What are the signs that an eruption is imminent?
c/Find out about famous volcanoes from the past they could help us in the future.
d/Develop our mapping skills. Where in the world do you find volcanoes?
On Tuesday, we had our exciting outdoor learning day where we learnt more about volcanoes…we are now becoming experts, so feel free to ask us lots of questions!
You could try out this experiment at home.(Outside might be best as it can get a bit messy.)
