We have finished our topic off this term in explosive style!
The children’s homework project was to create a volcano. Some were large, some small, some cardboard, some concrete, some were designed to erupt and some not… but all were absolutely fantastic!
We experimented with “effusive eruptions” (by combining baking powder, vinegar and some red food colouring) and “explosive eruptions” (by combining Coke and Mentos).
The eruptions ranged from subtle to fantastic – it’s just lucky we didn’t try it in the classroom!
