So…what did happen?
- The hot water naturally evaporated into water vapor, rising to the top of the glass jar.
- The pie plate prevented this gas from expanding into the room.
- The ice cubes acted like the colder upper atmosphere.
- When the warm water vapor in the jar met the cold pie plate, the water vapor condensed and fell back down as “rain.”
- The ice cubes didn’t really melt into the jar – it just looked that way!
- After a while, you may have noticed the ice cubes melted into the pie pan.
- After an even longer period of time, the ice water will evaporate into the atmosphere!
Children are naturally curious and instinctively want to know who, what, when, where and why. They marvel at the undiscovered world around them and want to understand how it works. They are interested in why things happen and how they can change or control the way things work. Children love to make and create and often learn best by handson activities in a fun environment.
Exposing young children to a wide range of learning opportunities can help them develop a lifelong love of learning. Teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) concepts even before starting school can also help children learn a majority of the basic skills and knowledge they need to address their questions and develop life skills. STEM learning helps prepare children to succeed by teaching:
- Critical Thinking
