Making a rubber glove wave science experiment

I saw this experiment on Quirky Momma blog?and definitely had to try it with my preschool students. They loved this experiment and said the glove was waving at them, so that’s why I titled this blog post this way.

I put 2-3 plastic regular-sized spoons of baking soda in a glass jar. I poured in a small amount of vinegar, about 2-3 teaspoons. I attached the rubber glove over the mouth of the jar and watched to see what happened as the fizz started rising in the jar.

As the students said: The glove is waving at us. It stood straight up on top of the jar.
