V is for Volcano
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
And so began our Grade Six Geology block, learning the words of Robert Frost.
Students love to hear about volcanoes, and lava, and earthquakes, and the forming of mountains.
It just makes us feel so.....
It just makes us feel how powerful and huge nature is.
It makes us think, and ponder, and be in awe of it all.
And besides, how fun is it to learn how to spell and say Popocatepetl?
We learned a musical spoken word piece in Grade Eight called the Geographical Fugue.
One of our favourite lines was:
Popocatepetl is not in Canada, rather in Mexico, Mexico, Mexico!
