Bubbling Planets

On Tuesday, we completed a science investigation called 'bubbling planets'. First of all we had to look at the planets and talk about them. As a group the children decided to make a particular planet. To make the planet, we had to mix a cup full of bicarbonate of soda and a tiny bit of water and mix it into a paste. The children then had to manipulate the paste to make their planet and we discussed how it was a sphere shape. We then used a pipette to squeeze some vinegar (which the children did not like the smell of!) on top of the planet which caused a big and exciting reaction!
