Teaching in a science Lab
Earth Science is not that exciting.
How can you demonstrate
Volcanic eruptions and plate tectontics?
Our Scientific Officer found an exciting prac
Settle some cold wax
In the bottom of a beaker
Layer it with sand and water
And add it to the refridgerator.
Get the students to boil the water
When it was nice and cold
And sit and watch that glass
Til it’s starting to get old.
Without any warning
Hot wax, erupts through sand
Quickly it cools down
Eruptive landforms thus created.
Now that seems all quite fun
And the students did enjoy.
Until one of the little sods
Decided to have a play
Wax ended up in the drain holes
And one thought it could be chewed like gum
Another decided to heat the sand to see if the beaker could break
They turned a fun prac
Into my own little erupting volcano.
Fueled by passion, healthy nutrition, fitness, and fun. My dream is to help others progress from where they are to where they want to be….. from Seed to Summit!
