This experiment allows children to see that air takes up room and is always present even though we can’t see it.
We began by blowing up a balloon and asking the children what they thought was in the balloon. Some of the children did say that air was in the balloon. We let the balloon go and we talked about what happened.
We took an empty water bottle and asked the children what was in the bottle. The balloon was blown up again and placed over the bottle. The children were asked why the balloon wasn’t going down when we did that. They came up with some answers so we explained that the bottle was full of air as well so the air in the balloon had nowhere to escape.
I took another empty bottle and poked a small hole just big enough for a straw to go through it. I sealed it with Blue Tac. We explained to the children what we were doing.
Then we asked the children what they thought would happen if we poured water in the bottle level with the very top of the straw. The children said that water will come out but they saw that the water didn’t go out. We told them that we would have to pour more water over the level of the straw for that to happen and we showed them what we meant.
Then we blew up the balloon again and put it over the top of the bottle. They were amazed when they saw the water coming out of the straw like a fountain. They also noticed that the balloon was going down as the water was coming out of the straw. We talked about why that was happening and that the air in the balloon pushed down on the water and forced it up the straw.
They enjoyed this experiment so much that we had to do it over and over again!!!
The children in my class were asked to bring a small plant pot and a cutting each. I covered a table with magazine papers and in groups of 2 each child put peat in the pot and planted the cutting.
We collected all the dried up felt pens and gem markers. We took out the colour inserts and cut them in pieces. Small containers were filled with water and then we put different coloured inserts in each one e.g. blue, red, orange and so on.
We explained that milk has surface tension, just like water, but unlike water, it is high in fat and is solid coloured. As the dye is less dense, it does not mix into the milk unless stirred.
We wanted the children to see how we can transfer water from one container to another using paper towels.
