Here are some things we did as a troop or I did at home to learn about and to love water.
Put a pot on the stove, add water and heat it up. After the water is heated you will see vapor or steam form and go into the air. You also see this when you take a hot shower too.
Remember I talked about the pot on the stove? If you add a lid to the pot you will see water droplets form on the inside of the lid. Next time you take a hot shower look at the mirror or window in that room, you will see vapor on them too.
Pour a glass of cold water on a hot day or put a dish under a cup and pour hot water into the cup and see what happens. No matter which way you do this water forms on the outside of the glass or cup, does that mean there is a leak? No, it is actually came from the air because the warm air turns back into a liquid when it touches the glass or cup.
If you run your shower hot enough you will see the steam on the mirror or window turn from a fog and start seeing the water start to run.
With the help of an adult you could try this;
Get a pot of boiling water, have an adult hold a mirror or glass plate sideways above the pot so you can watch the steam or vapor collect. After awhile you should see the water start to run off your mirror or plate.
To make a Rainbow
Water Glass Method: This is one of the easiest ways to make a rainbow.
1. Fill a glass with water.
2. Place the glass on a table, in front of a sunny window.
3. Place a sheet of paper on the floor. The color of the sheet should be light, preferably white.
4. Use hot water to wet the window
5. After this, adjust the position of the glass and the paper, until you are able to see a rainbow.
1. Place a mirror inside a glass full of water
2. Make sure the room is dark
3. Shine a flashlight into water, moving it around until you see a rainbow.
1. Take a CD and wipe it clean, to make sure it is not dusty.
2. Now, place it on a flat surface (the label side should be down), directly under the light or in front of a window.
3. As the lights falls on the CD, you will see a rainbow forming around.
4. Hold the CD in between your fingers and move to see how the colors move.
1. Take a piece of white paper and fold it in half.
2. Using a pair of scissors, cut a small triangle in it.
3. Fill a glass, preferably a fishbowl with water.
4. Use a tape to fix the flashlight on the hole of the paper.
5. Turn on the flashlight directly to the glass of water, keeping the paper above the flashlight bar. You should soon find a rainbow appearing in the water.
Mist Method: On a sunny day
1. Get a water hose and turn on the tap.
2. Create a mist by placing you finger over the water house.
3. Turn the hose towards the sun, to see a rainbow forming in the mist.
