Product Description
The events leading up to the American Revolution are often considered gunpowder added to a powder keg that was ready to ignite at any moment.

In this experiment students add British oppression (vinegar) to Colonial anger (baking soda) to create a visual representation of the outrage taxes such as the The Stamp Act, Townshend Act created and how events such as the Boston Massacre, etc. compounded by participating in a "volcano like" experiment.

You may need science equipment such as beakers and gloves from a science teachers our you can use fluoride cups/solo cups.

Complete with selected steps of the Scientific Method and a reflection sheet for students to better grasp the symbolism behind the experiment.
