Did you know??

1)Did you know that the volcano Santorini only erupted on one side,and that the eruption was sooo big that
is split the whole island of Santorini in Greece?? well now you know!!
2)Since the volcano has erupted the island of Santorini is now a form of a moon? now you know!!!!
3)before the island of Santorini used to be called Thera??know you know!!
4)Thousands of people tried to escaped but none of them survived this awful eruption. All of the bodies
were covered in ash. now you know!!
5)The eruption is mostly known as the ancient Minoan Eruption. now you know!!
6)Minoans are the people who lived thousands if years ago in Crete (island in Greece) and in Thera (Santorini)as well as some other
parts in Greece.
7)This has been the second biggest eruption on earth in the past 21 thousand years.



Here you will learn all about Mt. Santorini

Materials list

fake plants
foam houses
paper towels
glue paste


Anastasia's plan for this project!!!

1) I am going to the craft store to buy my materials for the volcano, on Wednesday.*
2) I am going to start modeling my volcano starting Wednesday or sooner.

3) I am going to try to put a slide show on the weekend.
4) I am going to finish the Wiki site by Friday.
5) I am going to work lots on my volcano model on the weekend

6) I am going to finish the volcano model by Monday
7) keep checking materials list (above).

Eruption history!!! santorini.jpg

The Minoan eruption of Thera (Santorini) occurred in the late 17th century BCE.
This volcanic eruption destroyed most of the island of Thera. In fact it even destroyed most
of the Minoan civilization, on the island of Thera. This eruption even destroyed some communities and agricultural
areas on nearby islands, and the coast of Crete, contributing to the collapse of the Minoan culture. Just like the eruption
in Indonesia, this eruption did cause a climate change, just not as big. The climate change was all around
the eastern Mediterranean region. The volcano eruption was so big, that there has been evidence found that the eruption has
caused failure to the crops in China. This inspired certain Greek myths,contributed to turmoil in Egypt stories.
The Minoan eruption of Thera did not erupt ever again, after this huge eruption, this was only a one shot deal.
Scientists say that there is absolutely no chance of this volcano erupting ever again. But you never know what
could happen these days. Maybe it will erupt thousands of years from now.

About Santorini volcano!!!

Country: Greece

Subregion Name: Greece

Volcano Number: 0102-04=

Volcano Type: Shield volcanoes

Volcano Status: Historical

Last Known Eruption: 1950

Make your own volcano at home!!

Difficulty: Average
Time Required: 30 minutes

Here's How:
1) First make the 'cone' of the baking soda volcano. Mix 6 cups flour, 2 cups salt, 4 tablespoons cooking oil, and 2 cups of water. The resulting mixture should be smooth and firm (more water may be added if needed).
2) Stand the soda bottle in the baking pan and mold the dough around it into a volcano shape. Don't cover the hole or drop dough into it.
3) Fill the bottle most of the way full with warm water and a bit of red food color (can be done before sculpting if you don't take so long that the water gets cold).
4) Add 6 drops of detergent to the bottle contents.
5) Add 2 tablespoons baking soda to the liquid.
6) Slowly pour vinegar into the bottle. Watch out - eruption time!

Volcanoes project

In this project you will report on an active or dormant volcano and produce a
replica of this volcano using whatever materials you have available to you.
You may choose any volcano from around the world. The information you
must include:

+The name of the volcano

+ Type of volcano

+ Elevation above sea level

+Where this volcano is located

+ Date of discovery

+ Provide a picture of this volcano

+ Dates of its notable eruptions and number of historical eruptions

+ Positive and negative effects of the volcanic eruptions on: the
environment, people, etc. à in general and specific to your volcano

+ Each group will have their own individual page to work from.

+ You will present your information in any form you wish on your Wiki
page (i.e. slide show; PowerPoint; Garage Band; iMovie, etc…)

+ You will log your process in the LavaZone Wiki site on a daily basis -
your updates will log in detail what was done each day, at home and in

Ø You will take regular pictures with a write up explanation to document
your progress at various stages of the project
