Baking Soda Experiments

We’ve been trying to do more science activities lately, and the boys really loved this baking soda reaction experiment.

We put six different liquids into individual cupcake cups, making sure to use the same amount of each. (I think we did a tablespoon.) I picked milk, vinegar, and lemon juice. Then the boys chose the other three. Love Bug wanted water and sesame oil, and Sweet Pea picked canola oil.

Then we scooped out some baking soda to add into each liquid. Again we used the same amount (a teaspoon) for each.

We then talked about what ones we thought would react with the baking soda and what we thought would happen.

Then we added in the baking soda and watched some of them bubble up.

They were really excited by the two that reacted and bubbled (vinegar and lemon juice).
