My kids loved this experiment! They loved doing a hands-on-activity before learning about Jupiter. I actually did this activity before completing Jupiter's Great Red Spot Webquest (my store freebie!).
This activity is meant for students to do along with the teacher. This is not designed for an independent experiment, but rather for the teacher to model and have students follow.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like me to make any changes to fit the needs of your classroom!
