PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this investigation the students will:
*Follow the scientific method in an age appropriate way
*Use critical thinking skills
*Observe the properties of water
*Observe that when soap is added to water the bonds are broken.

The journal is very age appropriate. It would work well as a center. Using simple supplies the students will demonstrate that a penny can hold many drops of water. They will investigate that water likes to stick together and soap breaks that bond. It is a great way to get students thinking about matter in small parts called molecules. They will never look at water the same way. Chances are they will be asking mom and dad for pennies when they get home from school.

Included with this download:
Investigation journal which includes 2 separate summaries for kindergarten and first grade.
Explanation about water molecules and tips for the experiment
