Green Club succeeds in making volcano made of recycled materials erupt

The Earth shook at Hillside World Academy today as the Green Club finished making volcanos and managed to get them to erupt! The students made the volcanoes all by themselves. We have talked about shield, composite, and cinder volcanoes and discussed why volcanoes erupt, where most of them are located and the difference between magma and lava. The volcano experiment was a great collaborative project. It is easy to replicate at home with recycled materials - just make sure that the eruption is done outside!
