Explanation Writing… Coke & Mentos Fun

One of our favourite experiments was watching what happened when Mentos was added to a bottle of diet coke.  It was super quick but a lot of fun…

coke & mentos 1-quicktime

coke & mentos-quicktime

In writing we then planned, composed and recorded explanations about this reaction.

An explanation begins with an introduction and then explains a process (in an order).

Our explanations were titled “How do Mentos and Coke react”.  The purpose of our writing was to explain the process of the reaction (not why the reaction happens).

Here are some examples of our fantastic writing:
