Today we were back at Lynn, Sarah and Fiona's house to learn about earthquakes and volcanoes! After watching some videos of lava flows and learning what to do during an earthquake, we went outside and *started one!!*
Lets build a city with lots of skyscrapers!
(Actually, we did talk about how tall buildings here are on special foundations that keep them from falling over in earthquakes, but there'll still be a big mess to clean up inside after it's over!)
Then we made volcanoes oozing with lava:
Finally, we played Race The Lava! Sounds scary! Run, kids!
Try to get away from this scary, er, lady dribbling a ball!
Ever the thrill-seekers, the girls have to run *toward* the lava.
Then the girls performed their scene from their upcoming Nutcracker performance:
Hope we'll get to see it in person!
Happy week, everyone! Don't forget to duck and cover!
