Blow Up a Balloon

This week the Preps investigated cause and effect using yeast. We had a big chat about how yeast makes bread rise and that there are ‘holes’ in bread. Then we recorded what we observed with our balloon experiment. Here are a few samples.

At the end of the experiment  we wondered about the following questions:

  • Does room temperature affect how much gas is created by yeast?
  • Does the size of the container affect how much gas is created?
  • What water/room temperature helps the yeast create the most gas?
  • What ‘yeast food’ (sugar, syrup, honey etc) helps the yeast create the most gas?

We would love you to discuss these questions at home and post some of your thoughts.
