Root Beer Float- Solid, liquid, gas experiment. Ice cream is solid, root beer is liquid, air bubbles are gas. Creates a chemical reaction because the new substance formed can't be easily separated. Nucleation "Tiny bubbles of air present in the soda cause the ice cream to float and are nucleation sites for the formation of large bubbles of carbon dioxide"- from Ice cream fizz.(wk 13) Floating Science, Root Beer Floats, Roots Beer Floating, Science Experiment, Schools Science, States Of Matter, Ice Cream, Rootbeer Floating, Floating Experiment

root beer float: solids, liquids, and gases - I bet we will use this for a science experiment one day!
This is another form of assessment other than a boring test. I could have the students create a book about matter and use this rubric!
"I typed up signs for the key words and definitions the students need to know for our matter unit. In the middle of the board, I displayed student work. The students used Froot Loops to visualize the differences between solids, liquids, and gasses. The background paper is from a roll I bought at the teacher store."
