This STEM learning activity will give learners the opportunity to understand how water can move and how different colors of the rainbow are made. As learners engage in this science experiment with limited supplies in their home, they will observe how water moves up an object, paper towels, through a process called capillary action. The paper towel is made from fibers so water is able to travel through the gaps in the fibers. The gaps in the paper towel act like capillary tubes and pull the...
Students will be able to make a hypothesis about what they believe will happen to water at the beginning of our science experiment. Students will then test out their hypothesis as we conduct the experiment and observe the effect of moving water through the process known as capillary tubes. The students will also be able to visually understand and create different colors of the rainbow by observing how different colors can be mixed together to create one color. Students will also have the ability to think critically by asking questions about the movement and other attributes of water while I read the story, "Hey, Water" by Antionette Portis.
No homework will be assigned for this one-time class.
-7 small clear plastic cups or glasses -6 paper towels (if they are full sheets you'll need to cut them in half) -food coloring in primary colors (Red, Yellow, Blue- you'll need 5-7 drops of each color) -small pitcher of water -scissors for trimming paper towels -any towels or additional paper towels in case any small mess is created :)
The learner will be assessed through informal assessment by questions posed and discussion about the conclusions of our experiment and while we are reading the story on water.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental Guidance will be needed as students are using water, scissors for the cutting of paper towels, and food coloring which could stain.
