This week we learned about the volcano Thera that erupted and sank.
So... we built two volcanoes and made them erupt.
The Plaster of Paris was quite difficult to work with that I nearly gave up. Thankfully the kids finally managed to sculpt it into things that actually resembled mountains.
After they dried, the kids painted them.
This evening before John and the kids went to BSF, we made them erupt with vinegar and baking soda and other household items.
Each time they erupted, I was told that I jumped.
The kids thought the project was really cool.
So did I, since I never thought in a million years I would be a homeschool Mom building volcanoes that actually erupt.
