Demonstrating a Volcano

Demonstrating a Volcano

We are learning about a volcano in Mexico (and about earthquakes there and hurricanes in America).

Today we used vinegar, bread soda (and wash-up liquid and red food dye for the deluxe model) to show a chemical reaction that looks rather like a volcano.

We could even see how much Carbon Dioxide (CO2) was made when the bread soda and the vinegar mixed together.  Enough to blow up a balloon!
