Erupting volcano experiment

For our science experiment this month, Oaklands House residents enjoyed making an erupting volcano. We used the common Elephants Toothpaste recipe to get the reaction required. We made our volcano base by covering a beaker and plate with silver foil. Once the volcano was ready for filling, our residents mixed the ingredients as per the instructions. Pouring in the last ingredients caused the volcano to erupt to ooh’s and ah’s of all those watching. Everyone involved really enjoyed this experiment.
