Big Learning For Families

I've been getting the Big Learning newsletter for quite some time, and heartily recommend it as a source of great ideas and hands-on learning activities.

In this week's issue of Karen Cole's Guide to Real-World Learning with Kids, Indonesia's Mount Merapi (an active volcano recently in the news) is used as the basis of converting kilometers to miles, and ascertaining radius -- for purposes of evacuation of course!

Then there's a great use for diet soda and candy to make a geyser -- along with a link to the science site as to why this particular reaction takes place.

Fun, interesting, educational. For all ages.
