In science, we have been talking about weather. One day we discussed clouds and how raindrops fall. We discuss that clouds get full of water and become heavy which cause it to rain. Here is the experiment that we did.
Fill a container full of water. Put shaving cream on top to represent the clouds. Take blue food coloring and squirt some in one place (a couple drops). It will become heavy and it will start to RAIN.
Last week, we discussed how paper can change in water. We discussed the different types of paper (construction paper and copy paper) We predicted which paper we thought would absorb water the fastest by using people poppers. The people popper are folded up like a boat and when it absorbs water it unfolds and they lay flat. The kids loved seeing the construction paper unfold immediately and the copy paper stayed folded like a boat longer. The students discovered that construction paper absorbs water faster and talked about why that happened.
I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL weekend!!!
