Starting the School YEar Explosively

Kieron made a volcano using the Young Scientist kit #6. He seems to really enjoy this approach, though I really need to be on top of things and have him actually read something alongside doing the project. However, this served its purpose of starting off the new year with a bang, or rather, a sort of fizz.

He set up the cone.


He put on a flour paste — we forgot the strips of newspaper.


Waiting to dry out.


He added paint… and is getting the ingredients for the lava.


It worked!


He enjoyed the process very much. Having the ingredients provided in the kit is worth the $$ to us but once he’s gone through the year perhaps I could just do it the old-fashioned way and gather ingredients myself.
