Bubble Olympics

Book Chapter by: Donna Governor and Denise Webb Digital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

The guiding questions for this activity are, “What soap makes the best bubbles and can you make bubbles in different shapes?” As bubbles pop and students experiment, think also about which solution gave the biggest bubble and what makes them pop. An explanation of the science behind the activity is provided. Students will also learn about surface tension, elasticity, and evaporation. Before beginning this activity, we recommend you read Chapters 9 and 10 which are in this book selection. Chapter 9 is an overview of the section and introduces the format used to present ideas for Family Science Night activities. Chapter 10 explains that these activities are what they call novice level. A materials list, references, safety notes, standards, and teacher background information are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, Acknowledgments, About the Authors, Introduction, and Index.
