Scholar Reaction In The Bag Inquiry Demonstration and Lab Activity

Heating Baking Soda

  • Gas comes from baking soda; moisture from gas touches colder sides of test tube, creating condensation
  • Heated test tube+tea=baking soda dissolves; tea is darker
  • Unheated+tea=baking soda settles to bottom; tea is lighter
  • Heated B.Soda and Unheated B.Soda are different substances because they look different
  • Control Group: Unheated test tube
  • Experimental Group: Heated Test Tube
  • Indicator: Tea
  • Variables (Something you try to measure):
  • Independent Variable: Changes dependent variable (Temp.)
  • Dependent Variable: Relies on independent variable (color of tea)
  • CONTROL FACTORS: Amount of tea, Amount of B.Soda, Type of tea, Amount of stirring time, Size of test tube

Exp. 1.1 Heating Baking Soda
