Mixing solids and liquids

We are working on solids and liquids right now in Science - my kids LOVE experiments. 

Earlier this week we did some simple mixing. We made Kool Aid to look at dissolving. The highlight for them was definitely mixing baking soda and vinegar. My students have been waiting ALL year for some explosions! 

Then we mixed different things (oil, pepper, sugar, etc) in water to see what would happen. **Careful with the pepper! I had a student blow it into their eye! 

I gave them small shot glasses (from the party section in dollarama) to use as mixing containers. They had a water cup that was for pouring INTO the other cup. Next time I need to find some smaller spoons for mixing :)
