Dancing Worms

Changing states of Matter

What you need to see dancing worms:

Baking Soda
Vinegar
Gummi Worms
Warm water

Today we looked at changing states of matter. We noticed that powered baking soda was the solid and when we added water it turned into a liquid. 
We let the gummi worms soak in the baking soda. Then we drained the baking soda water off the worms and we put the worms into a cup of vinegar. We then saw another change - we saw a gas appear from the fizz!
       



Predictions:

Kayley - Its going to start dancing
Hannah - They are going to wriggle
Naesha - They are going to stick together and dance together
Cherize - They are going to look like a wriggly worm
Ben - They are going to wiggle and going to jump up

What do you think is going to happen when we put the gummi worms into the vinegar?
Caleb - They are going to explode!
Shivali - The worms are going to go up
Millar - The worms are going to start dancing and jump out and start walking like humans!


We added the gummi worms and this is what we saw...

"I can see fizzing"
                   "I can see bubbles"
                                          "I can see gas coming out and it burnt my eyes"
                                                                                                    "It looks like sprite!" 


So what really happened?

The worms did not move like we expected :( They did float around a little bit, but they did not dance like we predicted! Maybe you could try this one at home with your family? Takes some pictures so we can see!!

It's fizzing!!
