Year 6 Fire Extinguishers
Year 6 scientists have been looking at physical and chemical reactions in more detail. They have used their knowledge of the reaction between vinegar and baking soda to create a carbon dioxide fire extinguisher in a balloon. As the gas is released it removes the oxygen from the fire triangle putting out the flame of the candle. Check out process below.
Children have also been learning about the periodic table in more detail and the hazards associated with some of the elements in it.
