Let’s create a volcano and Scratch dialogue

Did you know? The Ring of Fire: also referred to as the Circum-Pacific Belt, is a path along the Pacific Ocean characterized by active volcanoes and frequent earthquakes. Most of the Earth’s volcanoes and earthquakes take place along it (National Geographic, resource library).

The following Science Digital Educative Capsule addresses middle primary pupil’s interested in geological phenomena. Specifically, it describes how to make and erupt a volcano model. Then, the steps children could follow to create a Scratch project where two characters converse about volcanoes.
