Yesterday at our Stay & Playgroup, Ana brought some materials for a simple experiment. The kids put baking soda into balloons, and then put some white vinegar in the bottom of a plastic bottle. They then attached the balloon to the opening of the bottle, dumped the baking soda into the bottle and watched the chemical reaction fill the balloons with carbon dioxide.
All the kids really enjoyed this activity and wanted to do it over and over again. It’s amazing how much fostering curiosity in the kids helps them ask questions, make predictions and discuss observations.
