I found this really cool artist online recently. Her name is Margarate Godfrey, click on the link to see her blog. I used this artist as inspiration for a volcano lesson with my fifth graders. Here is what my fifth graders created.For the volcano, we used scraps of construction paper and tissue paper. These were collaged and glued to the paper. The lava was made with liquid water colors. We used a straw to blow the liquid watercolors. This made the liquid watercolors spread in random directions, which looked more like real lava. The sky was then painted with blue and purple watercolor paints.
