HOW TO MAKE A VOLCANO (PART 2) TUTORIAL

Part 2 – how to make a volcano — you can see part one of how to build a volcano (using yeast + hydrogen peroxide here)
 
volcano experiment
 
 
 
Materials needed for this volcano:
plastic clear bottom
glue
paint brush
play sand
vinegar
food coloring
baking soda
funnel
tissue
 Coat the outside of the bottle with glue so that the sand will adhere to the bottle.
 Then form a volcano form around the bottle
 Here’s what it looked like when done coated with the sand.
 Take a funnel and pour in about a cup of vinegar with food coloring mixed in.
 We have been doing these Science homeschool classes at a Children’s Museum and they put the baking soda in tissue paper and wrapped like a little packet, so have your child put that in the bottle.
Then once the tissue paper disintegrates the volcano will start to spew lava!
Come back next week to see our 3rd volcano!
