POP ROCKS SCIENCE ACTIVITY
I love to keep things simple and fun. I love science activities that are super easy and quick to set up. I also love science activities that allow kids to explore without too many guidelines! Over the last few years we have gathered together so many awesome science experiences for kids that YOU CAN DO easily at home or in a classroom. This pop rocks science activity is definitely one of them.
Now that my son is learning how to write and enjoying writing, we have started pairing our activities with science journal pages. You can download one below to go with this activity! Of course, you can also do this fun pop rocks science activity without having to write making it a perfect activity if you have multiple ages exploring together. Get the kids talking out loud about what is going on!

Science includes the senses in so many ways though not always in taste!

Empty the pop rocks into cups and print out our pop rocks 5 senses sheet!
Encourage your kids to look, smell, listen, touch, and taste the pop rocks. They are in for a real surprise!
To extend the learning opportunity with this simple pop rocks science activity for older kids, use our free printable sheet to write down observations about the pop rocks for each of the 5 senses. This is a great opportunity to talk about the 5 senses and get to have your kids practice their observation skills.
Apparently my son did not like the smell as he stated they smelled rotten! If your kids have trouble coming up with their own observations, ask some open ended questions to help point them in the right direction.
