SCIENCE EXPERIMENT!

Elm class were told that vinegar and baking soda would be used in this experiment and enjoyed looking at a range of equipment including a balloon, funnel and plastic bottle to discuss ways in which they would be able to inflate a balloon without blowing it up using their mouths. After they made predictions about what they thought you had to do to inflate the balloon, we then took all of the equipment outside including the baking soda and vinegar to demonstrate how to do this. The children found it fascinating that when the vinegar and baking soda mixed, it created a chemical reaction which resulted in the balloon inflating!
