Testing viscosity….pretend lava

img_1313

P4/5 have just started their new topic – all about Dynamic Earth.  They have built model volcanoes using paper mache and have been learning about different types of lava.  Here they are investigating different viscosities and rate of flow.  Our pretend lavas were water, oil and golden syrup…..the syrup was so slow flowing that the bell went at the end of the day and everyone had to go home!!
