Lively Lava!

Great Fanta Volcano Explosion

On Wednesday the 4th of November, Year4 completed an experiment about volcanoes. It as to see how different  lava creates the shape of a composite volcano [cone volcano and a shield volcano. To do this we had two bottles of Fanta .One had wallpaper paste added, to make it thicker like the composite volcano [cone]. The other didn't have the wallpaper paste so it would be runny like the shield volcano .To create the eruption we shook the bottles for a period of time, to make sure the liquid would actually come out. But it didn't come out like we expected because SOMEONE didn't put enough wallpaper paste in or choosed a fizzy enough drink! So we're going to do it again.
