Our oldest son, who's in 3rd grade, brought home the classic "build a volcano and make it explode" class project. We started with several items that were essentially recycled: an empty soda bottle, a leftover piece of plywood for the base, a cardboard box and our old phone book. In class, the volcano was subjected to the classic baking soda and vinegar experiment to simulate an explosion. Our son told us that his volcano had the most powerful explosion in the class.

Make your own reusable tray for a homemade volcano.  Use ceramic tray for potted plant.  Hot glue gravel and plastic dinosaurs around edges leaving circle in middle.  Glue plastic bottle in center.  Then build volcano from sand and put appropriate ingredients in bottle to create volcano.  When done rinse everything and repeat another day.

Dinosaurs are a popular part of Montessori lesson plans. To engage in some dinosaur discussions i made up this Dino land.
