Volcano's Erupt

What a blast we all had!

To end our Dinosaur topic with a bang the children had the opportunity to make their own volcano following careful instructions.

First they had to make a volcano skirt. They had to turn a circle in to a cone to go around the ‘volcano.’

They had to write the numbers down from 10 to 0.

Next they had to add the ingredients. First they added  vinegar. Next they added some washing up liquid and food colouring and finally they added the ‘magic’ ingredient, bicarbonate of soda.

When they added that their volcanoes erupted.

The awe and wonder was amazing, the children squealed and danced about. They watched each others carefully as they erupted one by one.

Some children even went home and made another one.

What fun!
