100 days of celebration and math!
We're also learning about hydrogen bonding and surface tension. So far we've been human molecules and linked our arms (bonded) together to form "water". We then used our pipettes to very carefully put little individual droplets of water on waxed paper. We made sure to keep putting droplets closer and closer together until the magic happened! The droplets all bonded together to form one big drop. The children then each got a toothpick with a teensy bit of dawn on it and touched the center of their drop. Be sure to ask them what happened?
We also experimented to see how many droplets of water we could balance on a penny before it collapsed, then compared with how many they could balance on a dime.
