Day 57

Today we learned about volcanoes. There are three types of volcanoes including: shield, composite, and cinder cone. Our class built a volcano out of cardboard, a two liter diet coke bottle, duct tape, and paper mache. We painted the volcano green and brown. To make our volcano look like there was lava, we painted red streaks running down from the crater and side vents. After our volcano was decorated we went outside to see the explosion. Miss Stadler opened the diet coke bottle and put in a whole roll of mentos. The eruption happened so quickly, it even went on Miss Stadler! The eruption went very high and was over within seconds. Watch our video to see the eruption!
