The children in Ms. McElligott’s room were causing all kinds of hysteria this morning when exploring the scientific world of volcanoes and eruptions! Below are the materials used and a brief explanation of the science involved. Remember kids, Don’t try this at home!!
MATERIAL YOU NEED TO BUILD THE VOLCANO
- A CARD 25 x25 cm
- A SMALL BOTTLE OF WATER
- OLD NEWSPAPERS
- BROWN PAINT
- GLUE (YOU CAN MIX FLOUR AND HOT WATER)
- PAINT BRUSH
HOW TO BUILD THE STRUCTURE:
- FIX THE BOTTLE TO THE CARD, BY USING THE TAPE
- MAKE BALLS BY USING THE OLD NEWSPAPER AND PLACE THEM AROUND THE BOTTLE AND FIX THEM WITH THE TAPE IN ORDER TO BUILD A MOUNTAIN (LEAVE THE TOP OF THE BOTTLE FREE)
- COVER THE PAPER BALLS WITH GLUE AND PIECES OF THE OLD NEWSPAPERS (PAPER MACHE)
- LET THE MOUNTAIN DRYAND PAINT IT WITH BROWN PAINT
MATERIAL FOR THE ERUPTION
- ½ GLASS OF WINEGAR
- 1 TABLE SPOON
- A LITTLE BIT OF DETERGENT FOR DISHES
- RED PAINT OR TOMATO SOUCE
- POUR IN UP TO HALF THE BOTTLE OF THE VINEGAR
- PUT A LITTLE BIT OF DETERGENT WITH RED PAINT
- COVER THE FLOOR WITH PAPER
- ADD THE SPOON OF WINEGAR…AND….”BOOM!!!”
The Science: The Vinegar is an Acid and the Bread Soda is an alkaline and the two of these mix together to cause the eruption!
Dualla NS atoned for their narrow defeat at the hands of Golden NS last week with a good victory over the same opponents today. The final score was Dualla NS 5-03 Golden 3-01. Both teams produced good team performances. Eoin M, Pádraic F and Páraic B were excellent for Dualla NS in what was a great performance from the entire squad. Our next game is against our neighbours Ballytarsna this Friday at 1:45pm.
Our favourite pieces of technology are:
Eoin – iPod touch
Aisling – iPhone
Nicole – mobile phone
Ava- mobile phone
Páraic – iPhone
Sir – iPhone
iPhone seems to be the unanimous choice!!
We had a great discussion this morning on our favourite pieces of technology. 4th Class think the mobile phone was a pretty special invention.
