Volcanoes Erupting in Year 3!

In Year 3 for their science topic, the girls have been learning about ‘Rocks, Fossils and Volcanoes’.

When it came to studying volcanic eruptions, lessons came to live and the girls created their own.  FIrstly they made the volcanic structure, using a plastic bottle and newspaper which were then decorated to look like an erupting volcano. Then it was aprons on and outside for the explosion!

Using vinegar, red food colouring and bicarbonate of soda, the girls watched as their volcanoes gurgled away with lava rushing down it’s sides.
