Lotions & Potions
Our first activity after arriving at the Otago Museum was Lotions and Potions with Heather. This fitted in perfectly with our recent Kitchen Chemistry unit!
We were put into four groups and went around four different stations, experimenting and learning about chemical reactions. Luckily we had great parents helping us to follow the instructions and work out what was happening in each experiment.
Heather repeated the mentos and coke (pepsi) experiment that we had done previously at school, except that she didn't use mentos - she put in dry ice instead! Wow, what a reaction!!!!
