Rowan Class: 218

Welcome to Rowan Class!

Our current topic is Volcanoes!

We are really enjoying our science investigations inspired by volcanoes. Have a look at this investigation Phelim shared with the class after he had carried it out at home as part of his learning journal task!

We used water with red food colouring in it, vegetable oil and effervescent Vitamin C tablets.






Do you notice a difference between the two jars? Look at the oil. The oil in the jar on the right is less yellow than the other oil. This is the oil that we added really carefully and slowly by using the back of a spoon to keep the liquids from mixing.
We added three tablets to the oil and red water to see what would happen. What do you think happened?
Can you see the bubbles moving through the liquids?
Lots of bubbles moved to the surface and popped.
Wow! Look at what is happening!
Look closely! What do you see?
Look for bubbles! Can you see a froth?

We mixed the red food colouring and water together.



We are learning how to draw maps so that we can draw maps of volcanoes. Today we drew simple maps of rivers to learn how to create a key. Here are some of our maps!







We made 3D models of volcano dragons. Here are some of the ones we created.








We are learning about volcanoes at school and at home. Our learning journal task is about volcanoes. Have a look at this awesome volcano cake that Imogen made! What can you see on the cake? Can you see any lava or a crater or even some animals?
Cameron made a super cross-section of a volcano using plasticine. He made a model of a volcano in layers and then a grown up helped him to cut it open very, very carefully.
He also found some facts about the most active volcano in the world! It is in Hawaii and it has been erupting non-stop for 30 years! Wow!

Phelim said, "There are different types of volcanoes. One has sticky lava and it is very, very violent and dangerous. There is another type called a shield volcano. These give you time to run away from the runny lava as they don't erupt violently. Scientists who study volcanoes are called volcanologists."

Darragh said, "Composite volcanoes are the most dangerous type of volcano."

Freya said, "Extinct volcanoes will never erupt again."

Imogen said, "Dormant volcanoes are sleeping but they won't stay asleep forever, they will erupt one day."

Jai said, "When a volcano erupts, it makes more rock on the volcano."

Cameron said, "When the liquid rock is inside the volcano it is called MAGMA but when it comes out or erupts it is called LAVA!"

Adrian said, "When you go down inside a volcano it gets hotter and hotter."

Kian said, "You know sticky lava, it is very dangerous because volcanoes with sticky lava can have side vents and a main vent."

Caitlin said, "You know when a volcano is near the sea and the lava goes in the sea, then it steams."

Charlotte said, "Did you know that you can get underwater volcanoes and it heats the sea there when it erupts?"

C.B said, "When a composite volcano erupts it will be very dangerous. If you dived in a volcano, you would die."

Isabella said, "There is a volcano called Mt. Vesuvius."

Pheric asked, "How many volcanoes are in the world?"

Sid looked in a book about volcanoes and found a picture of pumice stone. We discovered that pumice stone is made from lava and it floats!
