Lemon Volcano {Pinterest Classroom Project}

9:00 AM

Welcome to my series "Pinterest Classroom Project"! This series is based around my cooking series, "Pinterest Test Kitchen". Every other month, I post four classroom projects or experiments and let all of you vote for one week on which you'd most like to see tested. This month's winner was "Lemon Volcano" which was originally created by Babble Dabble Do, click here to view the full post.

This project is extremely simple to do and tons of fun. I find that this could easily work for any age range but more adult supervision may be required for younger children. I had all the items on hand for this project as well which made this even more convenient. Here is our attempt at making a lemon volcano!

What You'll Need:
- Lemons
- Baking soda
- Dish soap
- Craft sticks
- Plastic cups

Step 4:

Once we had all the ingredients combined, my kids begin to stir and immediately we got instant success!

My kids were so excited to see this come to life and it was great to see how easily and quickly it came together. This fit in so well with our science lessons where we are discussing chemical reactions so this was a great project to tie in to our studies. I highly recommend giving this one a try as I find it to be one of the simplest projects we have done in quite some time. I truly see this one as fool proof and tons of fun for the whole family. My kids spent the rest of the night making more volcanoes and now want to try to do the same with other citrus fruits to see if they get the same reaction.

Down in the comments, let me know what science project your class has recently done.  If you missed our last classroom project, click here to see us attempt to make "Galaxy Slime".
