Lava Beds
Wow! This is such an beautiful sight! If only we could visit there. Could we? Maybe so. In 1925 President Calvin Coolidge declared Lava Beds a national monument which I understand why. Even though its a "secret" park of volcanic rocks and many underground caves it is full of history and geological wonders.

As a student at Atkinson County Middle School I believe that going to the Lava Beds National Monument would be and excellent opportunity for us eighth graders to learn about how it was created and formed over the years and we could learn about its history from over the years. If we the eighth grade were allowed to go on this trip we would need to be able to bring tons of gear to keep us safe and protected. For instance we may need sturdy

We may loose a student, but we may find him. Someone could get hurt, but you could take them to the hospital which is only a few minutes away. There is always a possibility that someone might get sick and we would have to turn around and head back home. You may get food poisoning; you will get over it by a few hours or so. The bus may run out of gas or the bus may have a flat tire which you could always bring extra gas and an extra tire.

Many students would absolutely love to learn about the beds history and about its many different cultures. The first Lava Bed was made thousands and thousands of years ago. The caves that hold the beds are up to two miles long ! The first beds were made when lava had flown through and then started to cool down and then it stopped flowing leaving it to form. As you visit its outstanding home there are many adventurous things you could do. For instance you could take guided tours of the park, hike along many trails, climb cinder cones. and learn about natural volcanoes and high deserts in California.

As a new journey that awaits day after day we the eighth grade would learn more and more form this

    Dating back to as far as the epic of Gilgamesh, literature has explored the most prevalent aspect of human existence, journeys. Everything is a journey in life; we go through journeys to discover things about ourselves and the world around us. It’s said that to truly learn something you have to do it yourself, but we don’t have the time to go on enough journeys to quench our cravings for answers. That’s why literature has offered us the chance to learn something, without actually doing it, so that we can learn the message from a journey, without actually going on it.…

    This exhibit is something I truly loved because when I was a kid I used to collect rocks that were from mining and love to go this exhibit. I would go to the gift shop and get all kinds of souvenirs from my trip. This exhibit has fossil remains, the beauty of rocks and minerals, geology and critters of a limestone cave. It is so beautiful. There are also depictions and carvings of the layers along steep banks of the James River, and gems in an underground mine. If your child is a rock lover, it is definitely the place to take them…

    My long-time enjoyment of earth science, especially when it included fossil activities, had me doing earth science activities for kids from the time my own children were little ones. So when my middle school asked me to pick something to teach for six weeks that I just enjoyed, this was the first thing that came to mind. It was set up to be more like a club than a class, so while there were definitely learning goals, the most important goal was to have fun and enjoy ourselves. I knew I should include fossil activities in my lesson plans. There had to be a lot of hands-on kids' activities with an emphasis on fun. When I got my class list, I saw immediately that I would need to do some revisions in my plans: I had a small class, but it included several students with learning disabilities and behavioral problems. These were not going to be internally motivated kids. I knew that my most important class would be the first one. I needed an earth science activity that would get the students “hooked” on the subject right away. I had seen an activity with younger students called the “magic bag.” It capitalized on the unknown and their natural curiosity. But these were middle school students-and some tough ones at that! I knew I’d have to have a pretty solid subject area-something that could intrigue and impress. I placed a small fossil in enough velvet bags for each student to have his/her own. Before handing them to the students, I asked them to explore the contents of the bag without opening it. Since the students knew the topic was fossils, I didn’t give any clues as to the contents of the bags. Instantly the air was filled comments: “It’s round!” “Mine is like a cylinder.” “Mine’s got ridges.” Then speculation and conjecture: “I think this is that animal that looks like a clam.” “I think this could be a tooth.” “I know; it’s a snail!” I had the students pass their bags to the next student and compare observations and guesses.…
