Simple Science: Christmas Lava Lamps

Christmas Lava Lamp Experiment
This experiment is an easy set up and has multiple chances for observations.  It's perfect to add a little holiday spirit to your classroom! The experiment can be set up by kiddos!  We show the experiment in a large vase and also in a smaller plastic cup.  You can model the experiment in the large glass first, then let kiddos complete the experiment on their own!  Find out more about this experiment here!
