Question: What happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar in a bottle with a balloon on top?
Materials: baking soda, vinegar, funnel, balloon
Procedure: Pour vinegar into a bottle. Use a funnel to pour baking soda into a balloon. Place the balloon over the opening of the bottle. Shake in the baking soda. Prepare to be amazed.
(a) The mixture will bubble up. (5)
(b) The mixture will create Carbon Dioxide. (4)
(c) There will be a small explosion. (9)
The baking soda and vinegar mix and create gas through a chemical reaction. The gas expands and needs somewhere to go, so they fill up the balloon. It didn't explode, but you could use a lot of baking soda and vinegar if you want to hear a pop.
And...SURPRISE. Hayleigh's mom was the secret reader today too. Perfect timing! We loved the book Crafty Chloe.
It's not easy being different, but Chloe makes some pretty amazing creations with her crafty mind. She's also a pretty great kid because she chooses to do the right thing even when it's sometimes easier to be mean. This is a definite recommended read.
