Bubble Day is always a class favorite in our balloon pop end of the year countdown! On this end of the year theme day, the students make a bubble solution recipe for bouncing bubbles on their hand, determine the best bubble blower, compare the anatomy of a bubble to an Oreo and make a bubble wand. These end of the year Bubble Day activities for kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade are sure to pique your students’ interest, especially during the anticipation of the end of the school year!
Bubble Day Bubble Bopper Activity
Of course, one of our favorite Bubble Day activities is bopping bubbles up-and-down on our hand! The kiddos are always so amazed that the bubble doesn’t pop!
Instead, it bounces off their hand!
They work with a partner to make our special bubble bopper recipe.
Once the solution has settled a bit, the students take turns bopping bubbles.
One partner will bop, while the other counts how many bops before the bubble pops.
We tie in math by recording, graphing and analyzing our results.
Best Bubble Blower
Another one of our favorite Bubble Day activities is determining which bubble blower blows the biggest bubbles… say that three times fast!
We complete this activity as a whole group, but it would work well as a collaborative group activity too.
Once a few students have tested out a bubble blower, we record the size of the bubble.
This activity helps the students compare sizes, as they use the language small, medium and large.
Anatomy of a Bubble
Did you know that a bubble is just like an Oreo?
Both a bubble and an Oreo have three layers. A bubble has a layer of soap on the outside, a layer of water in the middle, followed by another layer of soap.
We also discuss the properties of matter, as we learn that a bubble is a liquid that is filled with gas.
How to Blow a Bubble Writing
The students also create a “How to Blow a Bubble” booklet. This step-by-step craft is such a fun way to review how-to writing.
Of course, we have to compare and contrast blowing a bubble with bubbles versus blowing a bubble with bubble gum.
We even compare bubbles and balloons using a Venn diagram.
Bubble Wands for Bubble Day
To end the day, we create a bubble wand using pipe cleaners and beads.
Then, we head outside with our bubbles (my little gift to them) and bubble wands!
