We have been learning about chemical reactions and states of matter in science class!
Last week we did an experiment to see if we could blow up a balloon without using our breath.
It turned out - we could!
We added sodium bicarbonate to acetic acid and caused a chemical reaction. That reaction produced Carbon Dioxide which escaped out of the plastic bottle and into the balloon.
The students really enjoyed this experiment and learned quite a bit about chemical reactions, chemical symbols and gasses.
