Volcano Model

We've been reading about Volcanoes this week. We finished up our study with a model of a volcano. The boys really had fun with this and it 'erupted' several times (until I started to run out of vinegar). The first time I measured carefully, but after that we used about 3 spoonfuls and a little bowl full of vinegar. The first time we used red food coloring, but after that Seth wanted to experiment.

They also wanted to add lego men to the scene and eventually wanted to see if the volcano would 'blow' with enough force to shoot one out of the top. It didn't, but they had fun watching.
