Experiment Time!!!

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!!!
