Science Experiment for 5th Grade–How Molecules React

Here is another experiment we did today.  (Courtesy of Easy Peasy All In One Homeschool-5th Grade Day 29)

What you’ll need is baking soda, an empty plastic water bottle, vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar for lack of regular white vinegar), a funnel, and a balloon.

First, pour the vinegar into the empty bottle until almost half full.  (Yes, the dish soap photo-bombed…LOL!)

Next, put 2 Tbsp. of baking soda into the balloon using the funnel.  If you have a small balloon, you’ll need less baking soda.

Then, without spilling any baking soda into the bottle, stretch the balloon opening over the bottle opening and let the balloon hang down to one side. Ready? Take hold of the top of the balloon and hold it up so that all of the baking soda falls into the bottle.

Here is the end result. (Please ignore the panic in my voice…LOL!)  Enjoy and God bless!
