A Rainy Day Science Project
It has been very rainy here lately - and cold!
I am pretty sure we are almost past fall and plowing into winter!
Our Homeschool Science Lessons Lately have been focused on the weather and the seasons! To facilitate this learning we have been using
THE BERENSTAIN BEARS BIG BOOK OF SCIENCE
Which can be found here:
This is an amazing fun book! It rhymes, its funny, and EDUCATIONAL! What more could you ask for in a children's book?
SO... Back to the rain!
We decided to do a little project to emphasize where rain comes from.
Large Clear Glass or Bowl
Fill the glass 2/3 full of water
Cover the top with shaving cream (like clouds)
Drip the food coloring on top until it falls through
Explain how when the rain gets too heavy in the clouds it falls through!!
Very Exciting as you can see!
I love seeing how my kids make the connection! I love it when it clicks!
Bringing book learning to life!
