Science extra started off with two experiments that we first had questions about and then made hypotheses for.
Our first experiment we mixed a borax solution and glue together. The students made a hypothesis that it would explode, bubble, and rise when they got mixed together. They sure had a surprise when it ended up making some crazy putty. It was great to see their reactions! We are going to continue to learn more about the scientific method and record what we learn from our experiments.
For our second experiment we mixed baking soda and water together and wrote messages and drew pictures on paper. This week we’ll use another ingredient to see if we can uncover the messages by causing another scientific reaction!
