Rocks and volcanoes

Posted by on 12/02/2013

Since Christmas 3JH have been learning all about rocks and volcanoes. In our afternoons of creative carousel work we have done some exciting learning including being rock detectives around school, classifying rocks and identifying their properties, making a volcano, learning about Pompeii, making rocks top trumps and writing a volcano report.
Here are some photos of the children making their volcanoes.

    Chelsea has answered your question Adam. Thank you Chelsea. She is right, we mixed vinegar, coca cola and bicarbonate of soda to create an explosive reaction and added the red food colouring to make it look like lava!
