Chris’ Volcanic Experiment at Colliers Wood
In relation to the topic of firefighters at Colliers Wood, the children’s learning expanded to other places where a fire could be found in nature and so the discussion of volcanoes was derived and an experiment began! What better to consolidate the children’s understanding of what an eruption actually is, than to set up the classic diet cola and mentos experiment, to create our own explosive eruption? A tube of the minty sweets, a bottle of pop and a cardboard tube where all the apparatus required to send a jet of fizzy liquid skyward! An explosive end to an action-packed month!
