First Grade Experiments with Baking Soda and Vinegar!
First grade activated their inner scientist, geared up for fun, and experimented with baking soda and vinegar!
First grade science has been learning about science laboratory tools and how to safely do experiments. Students practiced measuring and mixing materials in the science lab while being safe and using proper protective equipment.
Today, first grade students set up and performed their own chemical reactions by combining an acid (White Vinegar) with a base (baking soda). When an acid and a base are combined, they react to neutralize each other which results in the release of carbon dioxide as an explosion of bubbles!
Students choose their own color for their reaction and got to witness the explosion up close!
