Evaporation Week 2

Our experiment is over! We concluded that the water has turned into a gas. This is the reason it is not in the cup anymore!

We concluded that with the foil over the cup, it was not able to evaporate.

Evaporation

Cup 2 Day 1
Cup 1 Day 1


We are having experiment fun! This month we are talking about weather. In talking about the water cycle, the kids began to ask what is evaporation. It was hard for them to understand that as the water evaporated, we can't see it. We decided to do a experiment! We have one cup that we filled up with water and marked with a sharpie so we know where the water started. We did the same thing with cup 2, but we covered this one with foil. We are going to let them sit in the room and we are checking them during circle everyday and taking a picture. What will they look like at the end of the week!?
