We just started a new unit in school on Mountains and Oceans. Our lesson for Tuesday was about volcanos. We were able to do the project and build an erupting volcano. The kids loved it! After the initial experiment, Ben decided to try round 2. This time he screwed the lid on our bottle hoping for a bigger explosion. I was grateful his version failed, since I was in the line of fire!
I bought terra cotta colored clay so it would look better without being painted. Elaine was not so thrilled with the color of her hands though!
