Young scientists practice making predictions and recording observations as they explore water soluble science in this engaging lesson plan. After learning the word “dissolve,” watching a demonstration of what happens when certain solids are added to water, and discussing the results, learners will get to experiment with adding a variety of solids (e.g. sugar, salt, sand, glitter) to water and recording both their predictions and observations on a worksheet. This hands-on science activity makes a great addition to a first or second grade physical science lesson.
Students will be able to investigate and identify some solids that dissolve in water.
