What is a Volcano? There are 1,500 active volcanoes worldwide. Many others are dormant, or "sleeping." These volcanoes haven't erupted in a long time. Some may never erupt again. Then there are the extinct volcanoes. They fizzled out thousands or even millions of years ago. All kinds of volcanoes - active, dormant, or extinct are important. Volcanoes made up 80 percent of our Earth's surface. Most of our fertile soils came from volcanoes. A volcano is a place on the Earth's surface (or any other planet's or moon's surface) where molten rock, gases and fragmented debris erupt through the earth's crust. When pressure builds up, these eruptions occur. Gases and rock shoot up through the opening

Make Sure You Take Your Vitamins! Vitamins are very important substances that are found in the foods we eat. Like minerals, vitamins are needed by your body to help it work properly. Every vitamin has a special role that it plays in your growth and development. There are two types of vitamins. They are fat soluble and water soluble. Fat soluble vitamins are stored in the fat tissues of your body and in your liver. They wait until your body needs them. It could be a few days or up to six months! When it’s time for the vitamin to be used, special carriers in your body take them to where they are needed. Fat soluble vitamins are vitamins A, D, E, and K. Water-soluble vitamins don’t get stored

Donkeys! Donkeys are from the class of animals called mammals. People are mammals too! Mammals feed their young babies milk, most have hair and grow special teeth to eat.

Donkeys are smaller than horses, but are more surefooted, meaning that they tend not to trip or fall in rocky and mountainous areas. They also are characterized by their large head, long ears and cow-like tail. Donkeys usually have a gray coat,

RUN YOUR ENGINE IN THE 'ZONE' Preparing to take a test is more about mental preparation than it is about studying or cramming. Manage your anxiety first. You must get into the 'zone' where your mental engine will run at full capacity. Unfortunately an overwhelmed brain actually shuts down thinking and will favor a fight-or-flight intensity. Try as you might, your body just will not let you hear new information while in this state of being. The only way to be able to learn and hear reason is to de-escalate. Use a meditation moment to put your self in the best frame of mind before studying. It's simple - set a timer for one minute. Concentrate your focus on your breath or on a word that repr
