Making Clouds in a Cup!
Our class got to witness how water evaporates and forms clouds. The clouds appeared right in front of our eyes!!
Making it Rain!!!
we got to put the water cycle into our hands, and actually witness evaporation, condensation, and precipitation. We got to witness this awesome act of nature in a bottle.
Using the Water Cycle to Purify Water
Remembering back to our ecosystems unit, students experimented with desalinating water using what they learned about evaporation and condensation. We added salt to our warm water on the bottom of our bottle, and we learned that when they water evaporates and then condenses onto the top of the bottle that is holding the ice, the water is no longer salty. The water has now become potable!
