It's a Gas!
In this activity, students will produce different chemical reactions with yeast. They will observe and measure how balloons inflate during this chemical reaction. They will then create a chart to track their observations and develop hypotheses to explain the reactions.
Chemical reactions between yeast and sugar
Real World Science Topics:
- An exploration of simple chemical reactions.
- An exploration of single-celled organisms.
Students will gain an understanding of the ways yeast, a single-celled organism, feeds on sugar and produces a chemical reaction.
