in third grade at Riverside Elementary West became "volcanologists"
as a part of their Science class. They
studied the effects volcanoes have on the Earth's surface.
Students in the class constructed volcanoes using clay and
natural materials from the playground such as grass, leaves, and
twigs. The students made their volcanoes erupt and observed
changes to the Earth's surface as a result of the eruption..
