Volcano eruption – lava volcano erupting – Hawaii volcano – Lava lake – Lava flow- 2017
As a component of Stage 2’s science & technology investigations into Buildings & Bridges, we will be learning about ancient structures in the library.
1 The Great Pyramid of Egypt, how it was built – new solid theory, new evidence. JP Houdin. 2011
Why did we stop building pyramids?
Lost temples: Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza

Ancientvine – Virtual Roman house 3D reconstruction
Stonehenge prehistoric monument
Everything you need to know about the Great Wall of China
Next week, Stage 2 students will be predicting and researching the sounds of natural disasters in their science and technology unit, “Light, sound and communication”. These Youtube video clips will be useful:
Mount St. Helens disintegrates in enormous landslide
Amazing standstill tornado
Scientist gets too close to lava lake! – Richard Hammond’s Journey to the centre of the planet – BBC
Super creepy sounds in the sky during a storm in Finland!

Skiing – Avalanches
Untamed Earth – Avalanche! (snow avalanche; lava avalanche)
Nyamulagira volcano continues to erupt
Hurricane effects: strong winds and lightnings
I’m not sure if I’ll have access to an IWB for this week’s Science & Technology lessons with Stage 3 this week, but these URLs looked great!
I’ll also be accompanied by my trusty old thunder egg and a piece of floating pumice.
