The questions continued as the children passed around the rocks:
Jack: I think a volcano erupted when we weren’t there. The volcano was sleeping, but then it erupted and the rocks came out.
Grace: The rocks came out?
Will: Did the lava come out?
Jack: Both, I think. This is part of Mount St. Helens. This is part of our country. Mount St. Helens is part of our country.
Will: This was in the sand.
Jossie: When the volcano erupted, did Jack wake up?
Jack: We weren’t there when it erupted.
Lisa: Was the volcano nearby?
Jack: No, it was far away. It was Mount St. Helens.
Leigh: Like Lou Lou’s mom.
Elle: Did the volcano have lava and it was at the bottom and it shooted out at the top?
Will: Did it float away and they were trying to get it?
Sally: My volcano was nearby, so close to the house. We went to a meeting and saw a big giant mountain. It was a volcano. My mom came with me and we walked up the mountain and went sliding down. We saw it was sleepy, then it woke up.
Jack: When the lava is close to someone’s home it can burn them. It’s super duper hot.
Sam: Cecilia showed me a video of a volcano in the Phillipines. It went “[explosion noise]”.
