Fizzy Lemonade Science Experiment

Science is a major player in our summer bucket lists! Which I don’t mind at all, because we all know the benefits of science for children. Besides learning about the individual topic, science experiments can teach kids about teamwork, goal setting, problem solving, resourcefulness and much more. This  Fizzy  Lemonade Science Experiment is loads of fun for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners, grade 1, grade 2, and grade 3 students.

baking soda and lemon juice make a delicious summer science experiment

Fizzy Lemonade

For this simple activity, you’ll only need a few supplies:

  • A clear cup (not required, but it is fun to see the bubbles through the glass as well as from the top)
  • 3 TBS Lemon Juice
  • 3 TBS Water
  • 1 TBS White Sugar
  • Crushed Strawberries
  • 1 TBS Baking Soda

We used lemon juice from a lemon. We sliced and juiced it. We got about 3 TBS from one lemon, it is okay if you get more or less. Next we added the sugar and water. Now you have lemonade! But we wanted to make it fizzy & strawberry!

I prepared the strawberries by slicing them and literally crushing them with a fork. Add however much you would like in your drink.

The reaction is one for the books! Lemon juice contains citric acid that will fizz when combined with baking soda. This fizz is what it’s all about. The strawberry lemonade is delicious but the fizz is so fun.
