This video lesson about igneous rocks is really interesting after doing the work about the layers of the Earth:

This is a little investigation to try at home:


Sacred texts contain important stories for many religions.  Watch the clip about a Jewish festival.  What is the miracle in the story?

Either on paper or in 2Create draw a Menorah and explain what Jewish people do each year to remember the miracle in the temple.  Can you think of any other festivals that are similar to Hanukkah?


Think of a place that is really special to you Draw it.  Explain why it is special to you.  Explain how you would feel if it was ruined or spoiled.
