Early Literacy Practice: Playing
Play together by creating a "dancing corn" science experiment to learn about chemical reactions. Fill a tall glass or jar with 2 cups of water, add 2 tablespoons of baking soda then stir to dissolve. Add a small handful of popping corn kernels. Do they sink or float? Slowly add ¼ cup of vinegar. What happened? Time how long the corn continues to move in the jar. Try again with raisins, beans or rice to discover which item "dances" best.
