Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will demonstrate basic safety precautions relevant to the experiment.
Students will make a prediction and justify their reasoning.
Students will build two different "Cloud in a Jar" models. 
Students will share their observations and make a comparison of the two models.
Students will determine which model worked better and justify their answer.
Students will provide a scientific explanation of how at least one of the models worked.
I’m a teacher with 7 years of experience teaching core subjects. For three of those years, I taught science explicitly as a sixth grade science teacher. 
Model One -1 glass jar with a lid -1/3 cup of hot water (Can be taken from the kitchen tap.) -1/2 cup of ice -Can of hairspray (Any brand) Model Two -1 glass jar (This can be the same jar as model one, but will be easier if it's a second jar.) -a few matches (Only one will be used, but it's good to have a few extra just in case.) -1 balloon -1 flashlight -warm water (Amounts will vary depending on your jar.) -pair of scissors
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental help will be needed while building the second model. The second model will need a match to be lit and will require the use of scissors to cut the balloon. We will also be working with hot water from the tap and ice for the first model. Parents may opt-out of having their child build the models and have them observe the teacher's models instead if desired. Students will not be allowed to build the second model in class without an adult present.
