This week we spent some time learning about solids, liquids, and gases. The children loved the experiments!
We used an empty 2 liter bottle and filled it about a third of the way with vinegar. We then filled a balloon with baking soda and attached it on top of the bottle of vinegar. We shook the baking soda from the balloon into the vinegar and watched it blow-up the balloon from the gas it created. The children were so excited!
In our 2nd experiment we made Oobleck!
This involves a box of cornstarch and water. This is a very cool substance!
YouTube has videos about this experiment. The fun part was the clean-up. I poured the leftovers onto the table and let the kids have a ball!! We had a mess but it sure was fun!!!
