Thursday Afternoon Science Fun!

On Thursday afternoon we did a science experiment to see what would happen when we put Mentos into water and what would happen when we put Mentos into diet coke. Our little scientists made predictions and then watched to see what happened. We then talked about why the reactions in water and diet coke could be so different. We had a blast! :)
