Science: Making Volcanos
Materials: Baking soda, vinegar, red food coloring, play sand or dirt.
Description: Teachers can introduce the concept of volcanos at a group gathering. First read a book on the subject, and then ask the children what they know about volcanos. Then you can tell the children that you are going to make your very own volcano in the sand. When they are outside, have the kids form a volcano with sand or dirt, leaving a hole in the top for the materials. Then add about 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 1/2 cup of vinegar (depending on the size of the volcano). For best results, add red food coloring to the vinegar before you pour it. The kids will be amazed when they see what happens next!
