Pop Rockin' in Science

What happens when you dump pop rocks into a bottle of soda pop? Ask one of my 5th graders and they should be able able to tell you what happens and why! Thanks to a little Pop Rocks Expander experiment from Steve Spangler (click here for more information). 

This experiment was the perfect addition to our Matter unit and after our inquiry, it left students asking questions about why different flavors had different effects on the pop. Today we are continuing our thinking on physical changes and melting ice cubes with blow dryers. Cross your fingers I don't blow a breaker! No, really... cross your fingers. 

Sacrificed in the name of SCIENCE


  1. I'm so proud of you - what a BLAST it must be to be in your Science class!


  2. That looks like fun! Thanks for sharing!! :)
