Homeschool: Earth Rocks! - San Tan
San Tan Mountain Regional Park
Heat! Pressure! And Volcanoes! Every day volcanoes spew forth ash and sometimes send glowing red lava bombs miles into the air only to be pulled down by gravity. These bombs smash onto the ground and burst into flames while the heat melts everything near it. Students are often fascinated by this powerful and fiery mountain! They will learn about the three different rock types and how each was formed. Best of all: each child will create his or her very own volcano and watch it erupt. Open to non-homeschooled students as well. Limit 25 students. Call or email to register. Meet inside Nature Center

Time: 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM    Duration: 1.5 hours
