P6B – Volcanoes

In P6B, we are learning about volcanoes. We have found out about all different types of volcanoes such as: shield, cone, super, composite, submarine and lava dome volcanoes. Below are some pictures.

Today we erupted the volcano models that we had made. We used elephant’s toothpaste which is made of hydrogen peroxide, a yeast mixture and some dishwashing liquid. The ‘lava’ that came out was hot. It didn’t work so well with the coca cola and mentoes so Ms French demonstrated it to us.
