Project- Volcano. Directions: Cut a slit down the middle of a paper plate a cut a circle in the middle of the plate. Bend and staple the the plate to make a volcano shape. Brush thinned white glue over the volcano and press brown tissue paper squares over the wet glue. (We used brown craft paper torn into pieces).
