Blast Off!


Today we learned about scientists. First, we learned that scientists ask a question. Then they make a hypothesis, next they test their hypothesis then they record their observations, and finally they form a conclusion.

Here we are recording what we think will happen when Diet Coke is mixed with M&Ms and then when Diet Coke is mixed with Mentos.

Next we went outside to test our hypothesis...


















My friend (and wonderful Directed Studies teacher :)) Stephanie Powell took this picture with my iPhone...what a classic moment...the DC shot up so fast all I could think was... RUN!!!!

I don't know if you can see their faces in this picture .....it so reminded me of.......liter of Diet Coke $2.25.....pack of Mentos $1.35...... look on the kids' faces when the Mentos hit the Diet coke...priceless!

I really like this idea and was wondering where you got the worksheet to go along with it? I would love to do it with my first graders!!
