BES 5th Grade Science Classes

Our 5th graders began the year with a chemistry activity involving a “Zip Lock” Bag Reaction. Students used their observation skills to see, smell, hear, feel, but no need to taste!  I put 2 tablespoons of baking soda into a quart-size plastic zipper storage bag.  Students then added 10-mL indicator solution (bromthymol blue or phenol red) to wet the baking soda.  They then added 2 tablespoons of calcium chloride (sidewalk de-icer).  The color indicates a change to basic as COfills the bag.
