ELL Science Experiments | Reindeer Toothpaste
ELL students will love participating in a fun, hands-on activity while they learn about content area topics. Students will learn about endothermic and exothermic reactions in a visually supported way. They will follow simple steps to create reindeer toothpaste. They will read a simplified text explaining important content area science topics and answer comprehension questions. Then, they will write a summary of the experiment and an explanation of the scientific concepts. They will practice speaking using high-frequency academic vocabulary.

You will need to purchase 6% hydrogen peroxide from a beauty salon or online, plus other ingredients such as active dry yeast, blue food coloring, and dishwashing soap to complete the experiment. We also used safety glasses and a funnel.

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • an explanation of endothermic versus exothermic reactions
  • easy instructions to complete a science experiment
  • an accessible science text with comprehension questions
  • scaffolded support to encourage students’ scientific writing
  • a speaking activity with sentence stems
  • a speaking activity without sentence stems
  • a student-friendly speaking rubric

Your students will love this hands-on activity designed specifically to help them show growth in language proficiency.  They’ll be ready to write and speak with confidence about scientific topics in both the language classroom and regular education setting.
