We have officially begin studying the science of chemistry. Fun, fun, fun. My approach to teaching science is like my approach to teaching almost anything else, hands-on and experiment-based. I have a huge book of experiments and I plan to do at least one each week. First up was a couple of tried and trues, baking soda and vinegar reactions and making bread. We've made a couple volcanoes and played with soda and vinegar a lot, so this time I demonstrated and explained what was actually happening to create the bubbles and fizz. We haven't made bread in a while (grasp!), so they enjoyed this and we learned about how yeast works.
