Lets create a cloud in a bottle. Students will use the scientific method to answer the question:
Does the amount of pressure affect the formation of a cloud in a bottle?
This is a bundle of two grade level cloud creation investigation journals. The first investigation journal is geared for 2nd and 3rd grade. It meets the 2nd Grade *Next Generation Science Standards: Properties and Structure of Matter. The second investigation is geared for 4th and 5th grade. It meets the 5th Grade *Next Generation Science Standards: Matter and Its Interactions.
The activity is hands on and students create a hypothesis, follow the procedures, record and graph data, and analyze their results. Students will enjoy the process of creating a cloud and gaining new understanding that a cloud is liquid water in the sky. Teachers will love its’ ease of use and watching students get excited about science. Students will gain a new understanding of the effects pressure and temperature have on the evaporation and condensation of water. This is great for homeschool families, camps, scout groups, and science fairs as well.
