Making Fog Bubbles With Dry Ice…Teaching Science…Interactive Notebooks

Want to try a really fun science experiment with your students?

Let’s Make a Fog Bubble From Dry Ice

To make a fog bubble you will need:
 
  • a large bowl with a lip around the top
  • a strip of cloth
  • bubble solution (be sure to add a little corn syrup or glycerin to your solution for strong bubbles that will get really big).
  • dry ice (can be purchased in grocery stores)

Safety First: Adults should handle the dry ice with gloves.  Do not let the children touch the dry ice.  It can cause skin reactions.

Directions:
1. Place the dry ice in the bowl and add a little water.
2. Place the strip of cloth in the bubble solution. Get a generous amount of solution on the cloth.
3. Run the cloth around the lip of the bowl and then drag it across the bowl to form a bubble.
4. Now watch what happens!
Be sure to talk about Science Lab Safety!

  1. This is SO COOL!! I love those photos! I really like how you have students write about the experiment in their interactive notebooks, too! I bet it's fun to review all of the cool science experiments that you have done when the school year comes to an end!

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!
