This week we had a lot of fun with Science. We decided it would be great to try the Self Freezing Coke experiment. You can see the video that highlights this and why it works here:
I have to tell you, it works!
A few things we observed:
- The whole bottle doesn’t freeze. – We left ours in for the recommended time. Only half of the soda froze. We will be trying this experiment again using a longer time and different sodas to see if that plays a part.
- Move quick. – Once the bottle opens it starts to freeze. Move fast. Next time we are thinking of shaking the bottle and cutting of the top of the bottle to enjoy it.
- Science is Fun – In the words of my 7 year old, “This is Science? Can’t be. It’s just yummy fun mom.”
Introducing my Co-hosts!
Starting this week I have added some co-hosts to the Geeky Educational Link Up. You can find out a bit more about each co-host by clicking here. I highly recommend checking out their blogs each week as they will have different favorites than I will. You never know. You might be highlighted on their blog.
Waldorf Saland and Cottage Fries shared this great idea for a mini greenhouse. I think I will include this in a plant unit we are starting this summer. This could also be a great way to grow herbs for cooking right in your kitchen.
Dot to Dot Connections posted this great review of an ant factory she purchased. I love the twist on the traditional ant farm. I really enjoyed the facts she shared as well as the children’s perspectives on this project. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
Fran’s World of Discovery has put together an incredible list of lizard resources to go with the free lizard activity guide you can snag. I don’t know about you but I know a little boy in my house who is going to love this!
If you are selected as the blog of the week I will be using a graphic from your post. If you link up you are agreeing to this.
