It certainly was a great way for the little ones to hone observation skills and patience!
This was about 2 - 3 mins after we added and we swirled the salt in. Bob's structure was broken down slowly.
And finally, this is how it looks like 5 mins later - liquid.
It was a simple and definitely easy experiment. Dumpling got to:
- Compare and Contrast (I got her to draw both versions of Bob out in her journal)
- Practise her writing skills
- Understand the various states of "matter"
Dumpling took it a step further when she got a tad sad and asked me if she can reverse the process. So that in itself, led to various few discussions and other experiments where we discussed reversible and irreversible changes. :) Stay tuned!
This is part of a Saturday Science Series which I capture down the science moments that I do with Dumpling. Moving on, I will try to post these on every 2nd and last Saturday of the month! :D
