A fun summer project and experiment can be learning about volcanoes. If the school I worked at had a large sand area we would make our volcanoes outside. If there wasn’t a sandbox we would make a volcano inside the classroom using a tub full of sand. Either way, it is an exciting experiment children always enjoy.
You will need your sand resource, small empty water bottles, baking soda, red food coloring, and vinegar. I provided small dinosaurs for the children to use as they create and ‘erupt’ their volcano. Here are some pictures from past volcano lessons.
