Year 3 + 4 – Volcano Models Homework Project

This half term, we have made volcano models as part of our Tremors Homework Project.  Using actual volcanoes like Mount Etna, as inspiration, we created our own replicas using Paper Mache and Poster Paint.

Wearing goggles for safety, some of us then made our models erupt by adding a mixture of bicarbonate soda, vinegar and food colouring.  These ingredients triggered a chemical reaction which spewed out of the funnelled crater!
