Volcano Eruption Experiment

Last night we did a fun experiment on volcano eruption. Reese was so excited and he did the pouring and scooping.... it was just pure fun and educational. We were learning about volcanoes and the formation of it. During the experiment, Reese had a chance to see how the lava flows out and how it spreads to the surrounding area and at what speed....etc...

To do this experiment you will need:

Baking soda/powder (4 tablespoons)
An empty plastic bottle (500ml)
Vinegar (enough to cover 1/4 of the plastic bottle)
Dish washing liquid ( A few squirts)
Red food colouring ( A few drops)

Put in baking soda, dish washing liquid and food colouring into the bottle. Then add vinegar and watch the action. Cost of this experiment is about RM5. Baking soda is expensive. :)

Have fun.
