Class Experience

The student will be amazed with the chemical reaction that happens.
The student will give suggestions to what else we can do with the items and guess what will happen (hypothesis) before they try it. 
- 3-4 few glass jars (I like tall and skinny ones - about 8-10 oz each)
- vegetable oil (we may use lots)
- water
- food coloring (optional)
- glitter (optional)
- salt shaker
- a few tablets of alka seltzer
- vinegar
- baking soda
- spoon
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parent assistance is highly recommended for this age so that messes can be prevented.
