“In a matter of minutes the pyroclastic flow moved down the mountain and wiped out the entire forest.” the speaker told the audience. I was about 7 and sitting with my mom at some type of conference and the speaker was describing the Mount St. Helens eruption in 1980. I was fascinated! To think something could change the landscape so quickly was mind boggling to me as a 7 year old!
I’ve learned a lot more about volcanoes since that time, and they are still incredibly fascinating. I’ve recently been watching the Kilauea eruption that started in lower Puna. It is incredible to see new land bubble up from the depths of the earth. It’s mind blowing to see before and after pictures of rain forests turned to fields of lava.
With the recent flows of Kilauea and other volcanic activity around the world, it’s a great time for a relaxed unit study about volcanoes. Use this list of volcano books for kids to help your children understand the power of the volcano.
