Instead of dissolving pounds, we'll dissolve liquids, solids and gases in this incredibly interactive program. Does something that dissolves just disappear? Students will find out the answer by experimenting with different solutes and solvents and observing the reactions of each. Mixtures and solutions will be identified throughout this interactive process as students collect and interpret the information. A kit will be mailed with materials for the experiments.

Program Details


1.This program begins with a short discussion of what takes place during dissolving.
2.We then perform our first experiment together dissolving substances in liquids.
3.Next, we perform our second experiment together dissolving liquids in water.
4. The students observe the teacher led experiment of dissolving gases in liquids.
5. Students observe and explore with the presenter more with carbonated water and ways for carbonation to dissipate


The participant will
- identify solutions and mixtures
- define solubility
- understand the importance of keeping the variables constant during experiments.
- understand the importance of dissolving in relation to all living things.

Standards Alignment

National Standards

5-PS-2 Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling,or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.

5-PS1-3 Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.

5-PS1-4 Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances result in new substances.

State Standards

4.2(B)(F), 4.3(A), 4.4(A_B), 5.2(A-D & F), 5.4(A-B), 5.5(A, C-D)
Scientific investigation and reasoning. The student uses scientific inquiry methods during laboratory and outdoor investigations.

The student uses critical thinking and scientific problem solving to make informed decisions.

The student knows how to use a variety of tools, materials,equipment, and models to conduct science inquiry.

The student knows that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used.
