Volcanoes and Life
Are you ready to go back in time? In this activity we will be revealing the key role of volcanoes in the origins of life on Earth and we will be acting as scientists, following the evolutionary trail. We will be looking at cells under a microscope and discovering the differences between animal and plant cells. This experiment shows how photosynthesis brought about the changes that made life as we know it possible.
We will then investigate fossils that show the evolution of different species in the animal kingdom and see how volcanoes have influenced numerous extinctions. We will finally be extracting our own DNA, the key to evolution itself!
