Caught your attention there didn't it!!
We are off and running with a Volcanoes Unit here at the Preschool Learning Corner! While Violet is pondering Insects for Science and Nature Study ala Charlotte Mason, Seamus and Matthias are gearing up for some great Earth Science studies: Seamus is going to focus on Volcanoes, while Matthias is delving into all things Earth related. He has spent the first half of his year creating a spectacular Space and Planets Notebook, and now wants to move on to the Home Planet!!
A few books we're discovering for Volcanoes this week are:
Hill of Fire (book and Reading Rainbow Video) by Thomas P. Lewis
