More Water Activities

We are continuing with our science unit on water. Click here for the first activities we did.

Key words: Condensation, evaporation, dissolving

The children found out about the water cycle

and painted their worksheets in water colours.

We had fun and made quite a lot of mess seeing clouds form. Follow these directions if you would like to try it for yourself.

By carrying out a series of experiments, we discovered that water can dissolve some things.
Using cold, warm and hot water we tested coffee, salt, sand and sugar to see if they dissolved.

On the windowsill we have left a dish with a salt and water mixture. We are investigating to see if the water will evaporate and leave the salt.

*Photo added a month later, showing the results of that experiment.
