Scientists at Work!

Today in science we investigated some mysterious powders. We examined them and wrote down what they looked like, smelled like, sounded like, and felt like. No tasting today! Then we made a prediction about how the powder would react when we added water. Finally, we recorded our observations of the powder after the water was added. It was a blast! Check it out!

Water is measured, now they can't wait to add it to the mysterious powder!

Getting ready to pour!

Look what happened!

Watching the reaction!
