Baking Soda and Vinegar

FullSizeRender (30)Today the children enjoyed a wonderful hand’s on learning activity; mixing baking soda and vinegar.   They each received a bowl of baking soda, cup of vinegar and an eye dropper.  As they put the vinegar into the baking soda they saw things erupt, much like a volcano!

What type of learning was going on during this activity?

  • Language as they explained what they saw happening.
  • Fine motor skills as they squeezed and released the eye dropper.
  • A small understanding how different chemicals react as they are mixed together.

This is only a small sampling of what they learned, the best part is they didn’t even know they were learning.  They thought they were just having fun!
