They will learn about the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which destroyed the Roman city of Pompeii in 79AD. Children will then use their knowledge and understanding to create informative advertisements for tourists visiting the ruins of Pompeii, or alternatively, they will build their own working volcano!
