Natural phenomena are endlessly fascinating! Create a model of an erupting volcano and let off some steam.
Research important facts about volcanoes. How do they erupt? What was the biggest eruption ever known? What famous cities have been buried under volcanoes?
Where is the volcano nearest you? Pinpoint locations of volcanoes, active and dormant, on a world map. Why are they often found in clusters? Find photographs of erupting volcanoes. Note that some are islands, others are located inland.
Use cardboard for a base upon which to make your model volcano. Mold Crayola® Model Magic into a mountain. Be sure to hollow out the center of the cone for the crater. Volcanoes often blow out one or more sides of the mountain when they erupt.
You might blend red and black Model Magic to show the hot magma and lava streaming down the volcano. Press Model Magic together to seal seams when you join pieces.
Blend blue and white Model Magic to form tidal waves and water surrounding the volcano. Or create green vegetation such as forests or fields if the volcano is inland.
Add wisps of cotton balls to the top of your volcano to resemble steam.
