Vv is for VOLCANO!

Salt dough volcanoes were created to celebrate the letter Vv.  This project goes along with the concept of environment and the study of 3-D shapes.  We created cone-shaped volcanoes and inserted a film canister in the middle.  After the dough dried, we painted the volcanoes and prepared for the eruption.  The day of the eruption some of the kids were scared, nervous, and so excited!  I added red food coloring and vinegar into the film canister.  They added a spoonful of baking soda and immediately started screaming and cheering!  Never a dull moment in kindergarten!!
