Mystery Science in Mrs. Kirk's Room

By: Henry Dill


In Mrs. Kirk's class, we did a Mystery Science activity. Me (Henry), Kaden, and Cooper were in a group. On September 28 is when we did the experiment. We first watched a video about shield and cone volcanoes. The mystery was which type had which type of lava.Next we took straws and the lava. We blew bubbles in each of the types of lava (thin/thick). After, we wrote about which one was harder or easier to blow bubbles in. Then we tries to make a mountain out of the lavas with a spoon. Lastly we made our hypothesis about which lava came out of which volcano. We won't tell you the results but if you want to know, you can try it yourself!
