Today in pre school the children took part in a lava lamp experiment.
The children were asked if they had seen or heard of lava lamps before and then looked at visuals of them to get an idea of what they were.
The children did a tester experiment using bicarbonate of soda, vinegar, food colouring and oil but this did not work. The children then changed one ingredient (bicarbonate of soda) to baking powder and this did work. The children were asked questions on what they noticed in both experiments and what changed occurred after altering an ingredient.
This activity really got the children engaged and excited to see what would happen next!!
