Volcanoes!!!

What kid (and adult) doesn't love to watch a volcano experiment explode.   I find volcanoes fascinating to learn about and ran across this fun site full of science information including lessons on volcanoes, check it out here: mystery science. After learning all about volcanoes, try the experiment below. 

Ever take the time to learn about the ring of fire in the pacific ocean? 
Here is an interesting video on it.

Volcano Facts for Kids

Before you jump into the volcano science experiment, share these interesting facts about volcanos with your little learners:
    • There are about 1,900 active volcanoes on the earth. This means they have erupted recently or they might erupt. Some volcanoes are extinct. Over 80 volcanoes have been found in the ocean.
    • Most volcanoes happen on fault lines, or cracks in the Earth’s surface.
    • Most of the earth’s volcanoes are in the Pacific Ocean, in an area called the Ring of Fire.
    • The word “volcano” comes from Vulcan, the Roman god of fire.
    • Lava from volcanoes can reach temperatures of 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • Volcanoes spew out ash and toxic gases, as well as lava and lava boulders.

Volcano Science Experiment for Kids

Check out how these kids use household chemicals to recreate a volcanic eruption!
 Using the Volcano Kit from the video, little scientists are asked to mix chemicals to make the volcano erupt! This will be an experiment that Young Scientists will want to repeat again and again!
