Year 3 Exploding Volcanoes

To end their topic on Volcanoes, Year 3 took part in scientific experiments involving imitating a volcanic eruption. They had two different methods they were going to try to see which one created the best eruption. The first method used Coca Cola and Mentos, while the second method used bicarbonate of soda, red food colouring and vinegar. Both methods worked very well – the volcanoes erupted once the different elements were mixed together.

The children absolutely loved taking part in the experiment and watching the outcome.

We can not wait to see what you do next Year 3!
