We have loved the story 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl so much, that we had a George's Marvellous Medicine day! We had to find what the mystery liquid was in the bottle that blew up the balloon by fizzing and creating a gas. We tested six different liquids with bicarbonate of soda to find which liquids reacted! 


We found out that vinegar and lemon juice reacted the most!
