baking soda and vinegar experiment

Ask students what they observe.

The science behind these dissolving kite comes from the fact that we combined baking soda (a base) and vinegar (an acid) to make a chemical reaction. This baking soda and vinegar reaction creates a gas called carbon dioxide. You can see, hear, feel, and smell the simple chemical reaction asit bubbles, foams, and expands while. As the kite gets used up in the reaction they will dissolve and eventually dissapear into the vinegar liquid on your plate.
