The kids will want to repeat this fizzy Green Eggs and Ham activity over and over again! Make sure to have plenty of baking soda and vinegar on hand!
BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR REACTION
This fizzy Green Egss and Ham activity is a fun example of a chemical reaction including states of matter! That is a solid (baking soda) and a liquid (vinegar) reacting together to form a completely new substance.
When the vinegar (an acid) and baking soda (a base) combine together, they form a gas called carbon dioxide which is all the fizzing bubbling action you see! All three states of matter are present: liquid (vinegar), solid (baking soda), and gas (carbon dioxide).
What can you use instead of baking soda and vinegar?
Did you know you can swap out vinegar with lemon juice or lime juice?
