For the past number of weeks the boys of Mr. Canny’s 6th class have been constructing and learning about Volcanoes. There was great excitement when the boys finally got the chance to make theirs explode! They had great fun constructing them and learning about the various types of volcanoes and how they are formed!
The boys first constructed their Volcanoes using wire mesh and papier maché.
Once constructed the boys then painted them in their own designs.
Then came the big day! Using a mixture of baking soda, food colouring, washing up liquid and vinegar, the boys had the chance to “explode” their volcanoes!
The boys did fantastic work, learned a huge amount about volcanoes and had great fun! Maith sibh!
