Volcanoes

Soon we will be studying volcanoes. I am fine with the idea of them, but then someone thought it would be a good idea to see one.... In my lesson plans for the objective, it says for me NOT to loose my mind!!!

We bought this volcano model:
on the left, it lists what each part is, on the right, it just lists the numbers that correspond with. In the front of the photo, you see the tube where you add the mixture. There is a tray to catch the "lava." I tried to convince my teaching partner to do this on Monday as a a kickoff but I don't think that will be the case!  lol It will be the culminating activity.

oooh, that will be so much fun! I love teaching volcanoes? What grade are you teaching this in? I've used 3D paper models in the past like this one...didn't know if it would be of help:
