We made our own volcano!

This week Beech Class discussed what a volcano is. We watched a short video clip of a volcano erupting and discussed what happens when it erupts. We noticed that there was orange liquid and fire coming out of the volcano. We identified this as lava. We found out that the lava comes from the inner core of the earth. We know it is extremely hot as we saw steam coming off from it.

We decided to re-create the volcano by mixing bicarbonate soda with vinegar. We made predictions before we made it and then talked about what actually happened.
