Exploding Foaming Monsters!

As part of Waste Week, we decided to make good use of our plastic bottles. The children made their very own Viking Monsters inspired by the legend of Beowulf! We then wanted to see what would happen if we added bicarbonate of soda to white vinegar and food colouring. As you can see, we had both the successful chemical reaction and the reaction of the children. Priceless!

Year 3 – Which ‘monsters’ produced the best results?

What do you think would have happened if we’d added more vinegar?

What about more baking powder instead?

What did you think of the results?
