Invitation to Explore Fizzing Eggs
As soon as I saw these scented egg bath bombs I had to set up a science invitation to explore chemical reactions.
To set this invitation you will need egg shaped bath bombs, vinegar, liquid water colors, pipettes and a tray. To make ten color explosions a pastel like color you first add white liquid water color, couple drops of colored liquid water color, and vinegar.
Next invite the child to squirt the vinegar mixture onto the eggs to experience seeing and creating a chemical reactions. This gives the opportunity to explore their environments as they learn about cause and effect, cycles of nature, the ability to make comparisons, chemical and physical reactions and exposure to the properties of matter.
Through these types of invitations children build a foundation for future scientific learning. As curiosity builds through science experiments, children learn to be patient with projects that take time and how to make decisions based on the data that they gather. Developing this ability to understand the likeness and differences between things builds a science base as well as a skill for future math and reading skills.
