PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The students use their senses to discover the properties of water. Students touch, smell, listen, taste, and look at water through a variety of hands on activities. Give each student a plastic cup of water.
Seeing
Ask the students to describe what the water looks like. What color is it? What happens when you place it against a piece of coloured construction paper? What happens if you add light to the side of the water container? Have a small torch and shine this through the water.
Hearing
What happens when you drop something into the water? Drop a marble or a small rock into the container. Stimulate the students’ sense of hearing by playing a few pre-recorded water sounds. Download the app Relaxing Melodies. It features many sounds like rain, waves etc.
Smelling
Does the water have a smell? Have the student’s take a sniff of the air above the water. Ask the students: “What do you smell?” Why does the ocean water smell differently than the water we drink?
Tasting
Ask the students to taste the water in their cup. Describe the taste.
Touching
Give the students a second cup with warm water in it and ask them how the water feels. Do not tell them that the water is at different temperatures; allow them to observe this for themselves. Ask them if it feels any different?
