Introduction to Chemical Reactions

Grade K ages 4-6:  Students will learn the basics of chemical reactions and
perform hands-on activities to demonstrate what they have learned.


Students will use baking soda and vinegar to conduct a chemical reaction. Students then use a chemical reaction between an Alka seltzer tablet and water to launch a film canister rocket. These activities create a “wow” experience for the students.
