We’re making an at-home fire extinguisher using the three states of matter!😱
All matter can be classified as a solid🧊, a liquid 🥛,or a gas🌫. Sometimes, matter can even change from one state to another. Water is often used as an example of these changes. Such as turning from a liquid to a solid when it is frozen into ice, or into a gas when it evaporates.
Today you’ll learn how to blow up a balloon with a simple chemical reaction and why a common gas is used in home fire extinguishers!
All you’ll need is:
– a balloon
– an empty water bottle
– baking soda
– a teaspoon
– a funnel
