Forms of Water
Stacy, Second Grade Teacher
This is a great way to spice up a common simple experiment demonstrating the three forms of water.
- Fill a rubber glove with water and freeze the night before the lesson
- You will also need:
- a burner
- a pot
- Show students the hand-shaped ice sculpture.
- Place the pot on the burner, and the ice in the pot.
- Have the students observe the hand every few minutes and record their observations in picture form and/or writing. I prefer pictures with labels.
- Have the students note the water vapor and explain how it is a gas.
Students love the ice hand and it much cooler than normal ice cubes.
