These are some activities to learn about volcanoes, that can be safely repeated at home or school, using just foods and household items.
Each activity comprises a worksheet, notes for teachers/parents/carers, and a video demostration of the experiment.
- Mantle in a Bottle
- Bubbling Magma
- Lava Flow Races
- Effusive Eruption
- Explosive Eruption
- 3d images of volcanic rocks
These activities are suitable for all ages, although they will probably work best with primary school or lower secondary school age groups. The parent/teacher notes accompanying the worksheets include some broad curriculum links for different age groups.
