Volcanic Eruption in Kindergarten!

Posted on: 09 Feb 2017 by Weston Green School | Category: Early Years, Kindergarten

This week the Kindergarten children have been finding out about volcanoes. After conducting research through the internet and books, the children learnt all about making their own volcanoes. They used water bottles, newspaper and tissue paper to construct two models. As a group, they decided to carry out two different experiments, one using bicarbonate of soda and the other using coca-cola and mentos. The children made predications as to which method would produce the most realistic volcanic eruption. After carrying out the experiment, the results were tied. The coca-cola gave off the biggest explosion but the bicarbonate of soda produce a lava like substance so both were strong winners in Kindergarten!
