Juniper Room Makes a Volcano!
Throughout the school year, students in Juniper Room have been working in the outdoor mud area, “saving the world from hot lava.” Lava has become a large part of the students’ daily outdoor classroom experience.
Alexander shared with the class that he had made and erupted a volcano at home with his mom and dad, so teachers asked his parents to come in and help the class make their own volcano!
Together with Alexander’s parents, the class made a huge volcano from scratch over the course of several weeks, and with the help of a vinegar, water, and baking soda solution, they held an eruption outside this week for all to see!
The volcano erupted several times and each time the children shouted, “WOOOOOW!”
Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Kleinbub for working with the Juniper kids on this awesome project!
