Today, we read about Mount Vesuvius as part of our continued study of the Romans. In the book, Classical Kids: An Activity Guide to Life in Ancient Greece and Rome, it had instructions on how to make a simple volcano for the children. We have not done a project with our history studies in quite a while. My friend, Candi, on the other hand has been doing a lot. You should check out her blog for some of the things we have been studying that they actually did hands on. She is good at doing projects and I have to just have one of those days. Why today was one of them I don't know especially since I have a sick little girl who keeps throwing up and has had to have two baths already today. Not sure!! Maybe it made me think of a volcano experience;)(Side note: Girls throwing up is worst than boys throwing up especially dealing with long hair versus short hair!!) Anyway, we did this project today.This is our volcano.
I know it is not pretty or attractive but none the less it did the job.
