Today we did three more experiments in our Matter unit. In the first one we had to predict what would happen when an Alka Seltzer is dropped into water. What would be the results of the solid dropped into the liquid? In the second one we filed a plastic cup 1/2 with water and had to predict the date of evaporation. The third one was spraying air freshner in the air and raising our hands when we could smell the scent. Overall, most students seemed most intrigued by the Alka Seltzer experiment! As for myself, I enjoyed the many smiles, excitement, and engaged learning that I saw in my classroom. Matter matters!
