BUBBLES, BUBBLES, BUBBLES

GRADES: 4-8

This is a great lesson to use while teaching the scientific method. The challenge for the students is: Can you make a better bubble solution?

MATERIALS:

  • water in a plastic container
  • glycerin or white corn syrup
  • liquid detergent
  • stir stick
  • aluminum tray with a straw

METHOD:

  1. Measure 100 ml of water into your container.
  2. Add small amounts of the other ingredients.
  3. Make sure to record what you have added and the amounts you used.
  4. Pour a small amount of your bubble maker, make the biggest bubble possible!
  5. Gently burst your bubble and measure the diameter of your broken bubble (make sure to record this number).
  6. If you are not happy with your recipe, try adding more of one of the ingredients.
NOTE: I used a chart where the kids could record how much of what ingredient they used, and what the result was. They loved it.
