An easy, fun experiment that will get your students excited about forming hypotheses and finding out if they were correct.
This experiment is very easy to do and can be done by students independently (or in groups) or demonstration-style while the teacher completes the experiment while students observe. The only materials needed are 4 cans of soda and a container of water big enough to allow 1 can of soda to float or sink in it.
- A Colorful Cover
- Detailed Teacher's Guide
- Student Lab Sheet (perfect for keeping students on-task and as an assessment tool)
A wonderful, fun, exciting way to get your students thinking about what it means to make an educated guess (hypothesis), why it is important to do an experiment the same way each time you do it, how variables might effect an experiment, and more!
This experiment is also available as part of a packet of FIVE creative and fun, inquiry-based science experiments. Please search for, "Easy Science Experiments: Set Three."
