States of Matter -Gases

Within Science this week children have been learning about Gases. We discussed different uses of Gases in everyday life and how they are important within our working world. The children observed what happened when we mixed vinegar and baking soda together. They were able to understand there was a chemical reaction which resulted in the creation of Carbon Dioxide. The children understood this was how the balloon was inflated. Then the children used their knowledge of Gases and how they behave to make predictions for our Mentos and Coke experiment They children were able to discuss what they learnt from the experiments.
