Then each child was given Instant Snow in a bowl and a beaker of water to pour into the bowl. Each child was able to observe how when water absorbed into the snow it grew bigger. To reinforce this concept further she also gave us little sponges to soak in water. They grew bigger as well. Then she had "jiggly jewels". They are as small at first then they grew in water.
We used our "alligator fingers" to try get the sponges to grow bigger.
Thank you so much for coming into our classroom and showing us how much fun science can be.
