Hi Middle School,

The last 2 science lessons we have had together have been full of intrigue and discovery.

It was great to explore the Scientific Process (A-S-I-T-C-I-S) using some candy and everyday liquids you might find around the house such as shampoo, vegetable oil, dishwashing liquid and vinegar. What was most interesting to me was the predictions you were able to make about how liquids would react with the different candy and seeing some of them come true!

Check out these photos of the different reactions between the 2 substances.

Here is the video clip about the Scientific Process – it has really helped me to remember what order we do things in during an investigation.

What other everyday substances do you think would produce an interesting reaction when mixed?
