For week 3, please bring toothpicks and gumdrops. We will do an experiment during week 4. Please bring the following to class: Materials needed for Experiment #1:(Week 4) A plastic sandwich bag A tissue (Ex. Kleenex tissue) Vinegar Baking soda Twist tie (Ex. A tie that you find on a loaf of bread) A pie pan or any container-this is needed to catch the potential leakage of liquid from bag We will also do an experiment during( week 5.) Bring two diapers, water, and a plate(container) to participate in this week's experiment. Sodium Polyacrylate can be substituted for the two diapers. In (week 6), we will conduct an endothermic and exothermic reaction experiment. For this experiment, each learner will need hydrogen peroxide, yeast, thermometer, baking soda, and vinegar if he or she wants to participate. Also, 2 containers will be needed to hold the liquids. This experiment is optional. I will explain the experiment fully in class next week. If you don't have a thermometer, don't buy one. I am more than sure that you can gage the temperature change by touch alone. In (week 7), please bring a second device so that you can play Kahoot! In (week 8), we will conduct a solubility experiment next week. The materials for this class will be detailed in the attachment which will be available upon enrollment.
