Milo reporting from Northern Children
It all started with me making a different style of airplane. You see, I saw my wing to my other plane. I thought the wing woud be a perfect spine to the new design. So, I found this thin piece of wood to be the new wing. Then, I put a hole in the spine with the drill press. Papa held the wood, while I cranked the handle.
Then I thought of this idea to put bombs on it. So I found this dowel and marked out the measurement on the wing. My dad let me use his belt sander, before I cut the dowel to make the points on the bombs. I made a point, then cut it off with the saw. I did this 4 times. Then, I glued the bombs onto the plane and let it dry.
Here is what I came up with:
Begin to mix your plaster of paris according to the directions on the box. We mixed it 2:1 (plaster:water)
Measure the water…
Then get out the acrylic paints and have fun! Paint scenery if you like…we used red, yellow, blue, green, brown, and grey.
Voila! This volcano is ready for action! We will take out the bottle from the plastic bag, put the bottle back in the volcano and add the ingredients for a great explosion!
For the explosion, we suggest you do it outside the first time!
1.Take the bottle out of the volcano and fill it just about full with water.
2. Put 4 or 5 drops of Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Soap or any dish soap right into the water.
4. Put the Volcano over the bottle so it is in place and ready to go.
5. Pour some vinegar right into the volcano bottle and watch it Erupt!!
Science is so much fun! If it were up to Milo and Kiah, they would do science all day, every day!
Here are the directions to build a simple, yet effective volcano…
