Tuesday

Learning intention: Carryout basic experiment, talk about what is happening and why. 

ELG: Communication and Language - to develop their own narratives and explanations by connecting ideas or events. 

 

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.

 

 

Vocabulary 

 

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. 

 

Please upload you photos and videos to tapestry or email them to your class teacher.
