The class of 4TB became hands on scientists today as they created a chemical volcano. Using vinegar and barcobonate of soda (and a little food colouring) the budding scientists witnessed the chemical reaction caused when acid and alkaline meet thus creating carbon dioxide gases.
From Krakatoa in the East to St. Helens in the West - not forgetting Eyjafjallajokull in the North, the children will be discovering the wonders of Volcanoes in this unit of work. They will be investigating fault lines, tectonic plates, geographical traits and historical eruptions as the weeks go on in this exciting IPC topic.
We have posted some fun pictures of their experiment in the gallery section of the web.
