Experiment 2

Dear Year One,

Did you add any salt to your acid yesterday? What did you notice? Salt becomes a catalyst (it causes a change).  In this case, the salt causes the chemical reaction to happen quicker.  As I said in the results video, what a great introduction to being a chemist or an architect!


Welcome to Experiment 2.

Today you will need:

3 pieces of paper


books, newspapers or magazines.

Watch my video (Children, Video Centre, Year 1 Closure, Experiment 2) to find out your challenge.  Then when you have completed your experiment, go to the results to compare with me.
