I bought this book through the scholastic classroom book order program. It is a great book and this is just one of the great science experiments that you will find in this book.
3 bottles of soft drinks - we chose 7-Up so that we could drink them after the experiment.
3 identical balloons
1 large bowl
Put 1 bottle in the refrigerator overnight. Leave the other 2 bottles out at room temperature overnight.
We opened the bottle that was in refrigerator and placed a pink balloon over the opening. We talked about the carbon dioxide creating the bubbles.
Next we opened one of the bottles at room temperature and placed a purple balloon over the opening.
The pink balloon on the left, was on the bottle out of the refrigerator.
Orange balloon in the middle, was on the bottle that was in warm water.
Purple balloon on the right, was on the room temperature bottle.
You can already tell that the orange balloon was filling up faster than the other two.
I hope that you have as much fun with the experiment as we did.
Here is a list of the Linky parties that I link up to. Thank you to all of the hosts for letting me post my favorite recipes, crafts, money saving ideas and activities for children.
