In this experiment the boys observed that the salt in small amounts absorbs the water on the plate right away. The salt was neat to look at under the magnifying glass.
We also measured water in measuring cups and added specific amount of salt in a 2 different containers. This time we used a lot of water .We put one container in a very warm area and one container in a colder area. We are going to see how long it takes the salt to absorb the water or maybe the salt won't absorb the water at all.??????
The boys love science. We do a lot of science projects. After we complete the science project the boys are free to explore in any way they would like to. This often leads to a fun research project or even another science experiment.
The best part of all of this is - the boys are learning to love and enjoy learning. This love of learning is nurtured because most of the time we are learning about things that interest them. When learning is motivated by there individual interest we are able to go into greater depths.
