For Halloween we went outside to do a pumpkin experiment with our class. We had a lot of fun.

We used the following ingredients: Vinegar, Food Colouring, Glue, Pumpkin, Baking Powder.

First we opened up a pumpkin that had been carved out. We put in the food colouring and the glue first. Then we added the baking powder and finally we added the vinegar.

When we added the vinegar it started to fizz up and it burst out of the pumpkin’s mouth. It looked like the pumpkin was getting sick. Egh…

We did it out on the concrete near the pitch. It was really smelly so we were glad we did it outside.

It was a big mess, and a huge success!
