Young Scientists at Work

The entire school became scientists for the day.  The Neshaminy Montessori younger students taught the older students about chemical reactions using baking soda and vinegar. They taught everyone that a base + an acid = a chemical reaction.

Our young teachers gave “thumbs up “to big kids for their great work and observations. One student said that it sounds like my soda! Another said that it smelled like Easter when we dye our eggs!

The lesson also incorporated primary and secondary colors. The primary colors of red, blue and yellow were the colors in the vinegar so that they could mix them and make their secondary colors of green, purple and orange. It was so much fun and we learned a lot!!
