Explosive start to term!

In North America this week we kickstarted our ‘Disaster Strikes!’ topic by making our very own volcanoes!  After a brief demonstration, we gathered the necessary equipment and carefully followed each step, taking pictures at each stage.
Using our BLP collaboration skills, we worked together to create our very own molten mountains!
Then it was time to add the final explosive ingredient: vinegar!
As soon as the vinegar mixed with the bicarbonate powder, enormous eruptions went off all around the classroom! 
By adding red paint and washing up liquid, the results were truly spectacular, as was the mess in the classroom afterwards!
