There are also many hands on activity suggestions, such as using a hard boiled egg to create a model of the earth's layers, using Oreo cookies to demonstrate convergent, divergent, and transform boundaries, and using continents as puzzle pieces to make the Pangea theory more concrete and memorable. Many of these products can be counted as Interactive Science notebook inserts. This product introduces the earth science concepts of the earth's layers, earthquakes, mountains, volcanoes, and plate tectonics. It is mainly an introduction to these concepts, and should be deemed appropriate for the 2nd - 4th grade audience as a unit for these topics in earth science. It begins with reader response questions to the book, "Pompeii: Lost and Found," by Mary Pope Osborne, to bring the students into the topic of volcanoes and other earth science topics. The unit is culminated with a fill in the blank test including a word bank. All answer keys are included where appropriate. It is extended with a math facts activity to help students practice regrouping of large numbers.
