We started the experiment by introducing the materials and made a hypothesis of what would happen if we dropped the candy hearts into each liquid.
We dropped the candy hearts into the soda and recorded that it began to fizz.
We dropped the candy hearts into the rubbing alcohol and recorded that nothing happened.
We dropped the candy hearts into the water and recorded that the water started to change color as the hearts began to dissolve.
We dropped the candy hearts into the vinegar and recorded that nothing happen.
Finally, we decided that our hypothesis was correct for two out of the four tests. We also decided to leave the hearts in the liquid to see if more time would cause other reactions.
This week we began our Valentine Theme with a week of post office fun! We created letters to send home, played "post office" in the dramatic play center, and painted with bubble wrap. We have also welcomed new students, new high school teachers and new preschool staff. The kids always enjoy meeting new friends!
