Science Experiment - Gummy Bears

The Horses have been exploring weakly science sessions and this week took part in the gummy bear science experiment. The children added gummy bears to vinegar, sea salt water, bicarbonate of soda and water and tap water. They made predictions about what might happen to the gummy bears. Once they were added the children watched the process of the gummy bears in the various substances and commented on what they could see. The children were able to point and vote on various questions asked by team members such as which bear was turning crispy and which bear was soaking up the water. Once the experiment was finished the children talked about the process and what happened using descriptive words such as dissolve and absorb.
