What we learned yesterday

We learned some Russian yesterday.  We can write our names with the Russian alphabet.  They have a different alphabet than we do.

We also learned about volcanoes and how they explode.  There are different types of volcanoes.  There are super volcanoes.  Scientists believe that there is a super volcano under Yellowstone park.  If it blew up, the whole U.S. would be destroyed.

We learned about how to tell time with a shadow.  They used to have giant rocks that had things under it.  They would look at the shadow on the stone, because it moved during the day, and they could tell what time it was.  Then we made our own sundials.

We learned about fire.  We learned that we shouldn't get close to it or touch it.
