How to make a volcano explosion.

Since we started our Dinosaur topic we have been excited about Volcanoes. We had put on our topic plan to make a Volcano. So over the past week some of us have been making on in the sand pit.

Today we got to watch how to use science to make a Volcano eruption. 

We needed

  • Vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Washing up liquid
  • Food colouring- yellow and red

and of course a Volcano!

We went outside to record our science investigation. Miss Irwin showed us the wet ingredients and the dry ones. Then she mixed them together.  
 We recorded what happened as a diagram and some of us wrote down describing words to go with our observations.
 We loved it was awesome. We wanted to have our own go! There was no time left though so we knew we would have to wait.

Thursday came around and we had extra adults in our classroom to help. Miss Brindley was our new Volcano expert.


Seeing the explosions and helping do them was very exciting. We had to put the dinosaurs in the Volcano area so it seemed more realistic.
*No plastic dinosaurs we harmed during the making of our Volcano eruptions.
