Students in Mrs. Howard's fifth grade class have been experimenting.  During this experiment, we tried to find the best "rocket fuel" for our bottle rockets. We mixed several solids (alka seltzer, baking soda) with liquids (soda, water, and vinegar), and tried to come to a conclusion about which combination worked best. We had fun testing our hypotheses and being scientists for the day!
