The computer teacher and I do a short unit with our second graders about volcanoes. 
She has the kids learn a drawing program, and has them label the parts of a volcano 
and color it in. 
I talk about non-fiction books and why we have non-fiction books. And how we have 
science books. And in the science books we have books about Earth. And things on 
the Earth like volcanoes. 
Then I show them the V encyclopedia - look! More information about Volcanoes! And I 
have a piece of lava. And a science fair model of a volcano that we can put baking 
soda and vinegar in. And Brainpop. Wow. We get SO excited about volcanoes - and 
their reading story, Luka's Quilt, is set in Hawaii, where there are - you guessed 
it - Volcanoes!  
BUT I used to use my World Book Encyclopedia CD-ROM with some cool videos of 
volcanoes exploding and my Grollier CD-ROM with some cool photos of the ash laying 
around looking like snow drifts. But they are for my Mac and we have just been 
given Dell laptops and I can't use my Mac CD's anymore. 
Until I can buy another CD encyclopedia and get it loaded I am hoping YOU can 
suggest a source for some real photos and videos of volcanoes. I'd like to take 
these and make a short powerpoint show that I can talk my way thru with the kids. 
Or perhaps you can share what you show the kids?
