I show this volcanic eruption when trying to discuss the different types of eruptions. This one is called a lava dome eruption. Lava Dome eruptions stay pretty close to the vent and are very thick non explosive eruptions.
This video shows a recent eruption that occurred in Japan. I like showing this volcano video because it shows the eruption at night where you can see the lava bombs break open when they hit the ground. It also show lightning that sometimes if visible during volcano eruptions.
This volcanic eruption video is fantastic. A few people are on a boat when they see the eruption. What is amazing about it is the shock wave that is heard a few seconds afterward. Also you will be able to see the clouds get parted as the shock wave sores through the atmosphere. It is really a cool video to show students during you volcano unit.
Next time you are teaching your students about the scientific method, let them watch this Youtube video. The video does a great job explaining what the scientific method is by going through the different steps of asking questions, gathering information, forming a hypothesis and then stating a conclusion.
In this 1st grade math worksheet, students will determine which whole number is missing from a number sentence.

In this addition and comparing numbers math game students will have an opportunity to reinforce their greater than, less than and equal to fluency.

As a teacher you can either have the students discover AB patterns as a whole group lesson using your interactive whiteboard, or you can reinforce their ability of AB patterns using the worksheet. Students will also get to cut out and glue the snowflakes onto the worksheet as an activity. There are also a few extra snowflake they can cut out and create a necklace with if you would like to do an extension activity. This worksheet is great during the winter months.
