Volcanic Eruption

Today we made our own model volcanoes and did an experiment to make them erupt.

We built our models from old plastic cups/ tubs and created a volcano from foil. Next we painted our volcanoes.

For the experiment we mixed 2 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda with 1 cup of vinegar and some red food colouring.  We watched as the mixture bubbled, grew and spilled over the volcano just like lava.

    Kaylea came home raving about this. She loved it and could tell me exactly how she made it!

      Very good! Volcanoes are incredible. We’re learning about earthquakes this week.
