The children enjoyed the 'Dancing Raisins' experiment, seeing how the chemical reaction made gas bubbles attach to the raisins which lifted them up in the glass, until the bubbles burst at the surface and the raisins fell back to the bottom of the glass again. We learnt lots of vocabulary - mixing, stirring, dissolving, solution, reaction, acid, gas.
