This morning, we learned about chemical reactions through a series of experiments with water, vinegar, baking soda, raisins and cooked/dry spaghetti. After the experiment, each student drew what happened and were encouraged to think and write critically about the steps. Some were able to articulate why the raisins "danced" in the solution. However, mostly my goal is to instill wonder and joy of discovery - and I think the following pictures and (especially) the video shows what I'm talking about. We love SCIENCE!
