Demonstrating concepts and teaching about observation go hand in hand. Your child will enjoy learning about chemical reactions with this balloon activity and observation worksheet.
Science class wouldn’t be complete without experiments to prove facts. The visualization of scientific concepts helps children better understand how things work.
Engaging two or more of the senses adds dimension to the subject. Children absorb much more through these types of hands-on activities and enjoy learning.
This activity and observation sheet explores what happens when warm water, yeast, and sugar are combined.
To get started, prompt your child to form a hypothesis (a guess about what will happen).
You and your child will need to locate an empty water or soda bottle. You will also need to gather a balloon, warm water, yeast, and sugar.
Next, follow the instructions on your worksheet exactly.
When the reaction occurs, your child will observe details about what happens. Encourage them to watch closely and write down any changes they observe.
In the end, discuss the question with your child. Invite them to write their conclusion about what yeast does in bread dough.
