Lemon Volcanoes 17/07/20
On Friday 3rd July, Year 1 children engaged in an erupting lemon volcano chemistry experiment! They used lemons, baking soda and food colouring and examined how these ingredients combined together would react with the lemon juice. The children’s faces lit up as they witnessed a chemical reaction first hand! They eagerly observed how the volcano erupted as the citric acid from the lemon juice reacted to the base of the baking soda, creating carbon dioxide. This chemical reaction was sure to incite a positive reaction in the children as they marvelled at the bubbling and fizzing gas creating a rainbow of colours!
