    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.

      Week 13: Root Beer Float- Solid, liquid, gas experiment. Link doesn't work but the picture shows the idea - 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.

    Demonstrate the states of matter by building a fizz inflator. This a a fun experiment for a unit on states of matter. You combine vinegar (liquid) and baking soda (solid) to create a gas (carbon dioxide), which blows up the balloon. Before the experiment, have students make a prediction and write a hypothesis. After the experiment, have kids draw and label the parts of the fizz inflator (solid, liquid, gas) in their science notebook. Visit Science Bob to see basic fizz inflator instructions.
