Bonjour à tous,

Nous avons pris beaucoup de plaisir à faire notre volcan en éruption au cours de notre classe de samedi dernier. Tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour cette petite expérience à la maison est de vinaigre, du bicarbonate de soude et du liquide vaisselle. Vous pouvez faire l’expérience dans un verre d’abord, comme nous l’avons fait, pour vous assurer que vous utilisez les bonnes quantités  pour l’éruption.

En outre, il est bon d’agir comme des scientifiques et de leur poser des questions sur ce qui va se produire lors de votre expérience. A cet age, les enfants ont une imagination énorme et ils pourraient penser qu’ils ont vu du feu et /ou de la fumée. C’est juste l’excitation et l’imagination à son meilleur.

Voici une autre petite astuce: utilisez du colorant alimentaire dans votre mélange pour  l’éruption du volcan afin d’obtenir des couleurs plus authentiques. Nous n’avons pas utilisé de colorant alimentaire pour les nôtres, parce que nous avions déjà à la maison du vinaigre de vin rouge qui a très bien fonctionné.

Passez tous une trè bonne semaine!

Just Speak!

Hello Everyone,

We had a lot of fun making our volcano erupt during our class this past Saturday. All you need to do this little experiment at home is vinegar, baking soda and dishwashing liquid. You might want to try out the experiment in a glass first, like we did, to make sure that you get it right before trying it out in your volcano.

Also, it’s nice to act like proper scientists and ask questions about what you expect to occur during your experiment as well as what occurred afterward. At this age children have HUGE imaginations and they might still think that they saw fire and/or smoke even after your experiment is over. Don’t worry about that, that’s just excitement and imagination at its best :)

Here’s another little tip: use food coloring in your volcano eruption mixture in order to get the colors to look more authentic. We didn’t use food coloring for ours because we had red wine vinegar on hand and that worked fine but perhaps a little food coloring wouldn’t have hurt.

Have a great week everyone!

Just Speak,

Danielle
