Mrs. Bush's third grade students performed an experiment to observe and draw conclusions about shield and cone volcanoes. Students made predictions and observed two different 'lava' samples and performed their experiments deducting what kind of lava comes from the two kinds of landforms based on the thickness of the liquid. Once finished, students had an opportunity to share and discuss their findings. Click to see more pictures.
