Experiment In Class!

Feb 17, 2018


Welcome to Global Learning Preschool, where we believe in unlocking the true potential of every child through innovative and engaging teaching methods. In this article, we delve into an exhilarating experiment conducted in our classrooms that demonstrates our commitment to providing a stimulating learning environment for young minds.

The Power of Hands-on Learning

At Global Learning Preschool, we strongly believe in the power of hands-on learning experiences. These experiences help children actively engage with the subject matter, fostering curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity. Our experiment in class serves as a testament to the effectiveness of this approach.

The Experiment Setup

For this experiment, we transformed our classroom into a mini science laboratory, complete with age-appropriate scientific equipment and materials. The objective was to introduce the concept of chemical reactions to our students, aged between 4 and 5 years, in a fun and interactive manner.

The Process

The experiment began with a hands-on demonstration by our experienced teachers. They carefully explained the scientific principles behind chemical reactions, such as mixing ingredients that result in observable changes.

To make the learning experience even more exciting, we divided the children into small groups and assigned each group a specific experiment. Each experiment was designed to showcase a different chemical reaction while emphasizing safety measures and the importance of following instructions.

The Experiments

1. Volcanic Eruptions

In this experiment, the children created mini volcanoes using a mixture of baking soda, vinegar, and food coloring. They witnessed the fascinating chemical reaction as the volcano erupted, mimicking the phenomena of natural volcanic eruptions.

2. Fizzy Lemonade

For the fizzy lemonade experiment, the children combined lemon juice, water, and baking soda to create a refreshing and effervescent beverage. They were amazed as they saw the lemonade fizz and bubble, thanks to the release of carbon dioxide gas.

3. Dancing Raisins

This experiment involved placing raisins in a glass of carbonated water. The children observed with delight as the raisins danced and moved around due to the release of carbon dioxide bubbles from the carbonated water.

The Learning Outcome

Through these experiments, our young learners not only experienced the chemical reactions firsthand but also gained a profound understanding of scientific concepts. They were encouraged to ask questions, make predictions, and analyze the outcomes, fostering critical thinking and problem-solving skills.


At Global Learning Preschool, we believe that educational experiments in the classroom setting serve as catalysts for intellectual growth and development. Our commitment to hands-on learning allows children to explore and discover the world around them in a meaningful and enjoyable way. Join us on this exciting journey at Global Learning Preschool - where experiments spark curiosity and lifelong love for learning.
