Today we are going to recap the feeling and how they link to the colours. We are then going to carry out an experiment using colours. This experiment encourages descriptive language.
fizz soft bubbles colours
crackle pop foam smell
cold hot mix react
This experiment, which uses baking soda and vinegar, teaches children about chemical reactions. As children conduct this science experiment they also develop a greater understanding of colours while building on their fine motor skills.
A baking dish with a layer of baking soda (or baking powder), some small bowls with 1/2 cup of vinegar with a few drops of food colouring and a dropper is all that you need.
Start by identifying all of the colours and link these to the emotions from The Colour Monster story. Use the senses to explore the ingredients.
What does the vinegar smell like? What does the baking powder feel like?
As soon as the coloured vinegar touches the baking soda a fizzy chemical reaction occurs. Colourful bubbles begin appearing immediately once the powder and liquid make contact. The colours mixed together really easily to create new colours.
