🎃 Hello, my dear parents! Here’s our Halloween pumpkin volcano experiment.
Why do we do science experiments in our school and how they help your child learn English?
Science experiments are very visual and they activate all of your child’s senses. Your child does the experiment at home, we always send short instructions and discuss the needed things with parents first. The experiments use a lot of functional language (everyday verbs such as pour, clean, stir, move, add, take), we learn about basic chemical reactions, we practice our fine motor skills (this will help your child get ready to write and we practice using fingers), and we also learn about other cultures and holidays.
Things you need for the experiment:
- One carved pumpkin
- Baking soda
- Food colouring (orange of course!)
- Large plastic juice jug or a bucket works too
- An outdoor space you don’t mind getting a little messy
Steps for the experiment
Clean out the pumpkin and get it ready for carving.
Carve it out and make sure to leave some space at the bottom for liquids.
Add the baking soda and the color. Pour vinegar slowly and wait.
