what i love about these kind of projects is when we see it extended. so yes, this was squares of newspaper glued on a block n form, but what you can’t see are the dictations of what it really is:
“the top of one side is a volcano”
“the top of the other side is blasting out hot lava”
“the bottom of the other side is the hot lava that cools off and rolls down”
one technique we use is having a teacher put down dots of glue for a child to hide…this changes the focus of the project for some…it becomes a one-to-one correspondence activity rather than a making-pools-of-glue project (because glue sticks usually irritate me).
