Volcanoes

In kindergarten, we teach Saxon Phonics.  Last week was letter V week.  In the past, we have planted vegetables and studied plants.  This year, I decided to teach a unit on volcanoes.  The kids were so excited.  We created an explosion with Diet Coke and Mentos.  We also made a volcano erupt with baking soda and vinegar.  After creating the two eruptions, students created a Venn diagram comparing the two eruptions.  I have included a few photos from our volcano week.  If you are interested you can find the unit here.
