Volcanoes and Earthquakes Science Kit
The Volcanoes and Earthquakes Science Kit from Thames and Kosmos, made in conjunction with National Geographic helps explain the very Earth under our feet! The Earth's surface is constantly moving and causing collisions that force pieces of its outer layer to shift under, over, or away from one another. It is these shifts that cause the earthquakes and volcanoes that shape and shatter our Earth's surface. With this science set, kids will construct a volcano and cause it to erupt to see the effects it would have on the Earth - in fact, it is able to erupt multiple times to demonstrate how a new layer of Earth is created after each eruption. This set teaches kids how to make a seismograph, and then fake some earthquakes to see how scientists measure the quakes forces. In addition, kids can explore plate tectonics and see how their constant movement creates volcanoes and earthquakes. This kit also includes a tectonics puzzle, geological globe, and an in-depth, 48-page instruction manual with clear step-by-step instructions and a one-page-per-experiment layout. Kids' minds will be exploding with knowledge like the volcanoes they build!
