Gallery: YEAR 4 2015-2016: 4T Volcanoes - Spring 2016

This term year 4s’ have been studying Active Planet.  The students have explored plate tectonics, and the role they play in natural disasters, particularly volcanoes.  After studiously working to understand the intricate details of a volcano, it was time to have some fun.  The students designed and created their own volcano using various materials.  After painting and putting them aside to dry, the task of creating an experiment that demonstrated an active volcanic eruption began.  The students combined warm water, dishwashing liquid, bicarbonate soda, and vinegar with explosive results. 

Empowered to explore, inspired to learn
