Montessori-inspired Volcano Activities with Free Printables

Bulldozer loves geology and has shown a particular interest in volcanoes lately.  I couldn't resist the opportunity to review some basic concepts and then expand to others based on questions he's had.

These Montessori-inspired volcano activities with free printables have been a huge it in our classroom.  So much that when I rotated them out the first time, the kids begged for them to come back.

Here's what we've been up to!

Parts of a Volcano

Using the cards provided the kids, especially Princess and Sunshine, enjoyed creating their own Parts of a Volcano books.  They colored the specific parts mentioned on each card, and then depending on abilities either traced or wrote the words of each part.

Bulldozer and his brother are very much into everything LEGO, but we've never used the blocks in the classroom until this project.  I challenged to the boys to build the layers of a volcano with LEGO bricks.  It proved to be much more challenging than they thought, but they stuck with it.  If you look closely you can see all parts of the volcano mentioned on the cards in the activity above.

As Bulldozer was enjoying multiple volcano books we checked out from our local library he discovered that there are different types of eruptions.  This was fascinating to him and he asked for more information .We responded with this match up activity.
