Air and Water Experiment
In our experiment today the class was introduced to a vial, foam ball, and a tub of water. The children where told to first explore with the vial and water with their purpose being to find out what happens to air when it is under water. Then, they introduced the foam ball to their experiment to see if they could float the foam ball on the water and put the vial over it. Finally, the students were challenged to put a dry paper towel at the very bottom of their vial. Then, turn it upside and push it straight into the water to see if the paper towel would stay dry! Please ask your child to tell you what happened! Also, listen to Michael explain on the blog how he made a connection to this experiment from a time when he was swimming! Enjoy the pictures! We sure had fun!
