Volcano


Today Julian and I did an experiment that showed him how a volcano works. It was pretty neat actually. You put vinegar and food coloring in a container with a small top. Then you mix 1/2 cup of water with a tablespoon of baking soda and pour it into the opening at the top of the container that holds your vinegar. A chemical reaction occurs and you get bubbling ooze all over the "volcano". He loved it and now he wants to do experiments every day. It made for a fun day. We put together a scientific method graphic organizer where he stated his hypothesis and wrote down his experiment and it's results and then came up with a conclusion.
