Few nights back, I narrated the thirsty crow story to my son. He was fascinated by the crow but didn’t really get to comprehend how the water could rise and how easy was it for the crow to drink water after that.
Then I thought it won’t take too long to pull together this simple experiment.
I promptly grabbed in some stones which we had at home, a jar and a spoon to set this up.
My clever cookie is working on his spoon skills nowadays and so I offered him a wooden spoon to drop the stones.
While he dropped in the stones, he saw tiny bubbles blow up and couldn’t contain the excitement.
He also learnt a new word “splash” when the water speckled each time 🙂
And voila, we watched the water level rise and ooze outside.
We also did this sugar dissolving activity. This is a pretty much simple activity where the child stirs in sugar to watch it dissolve.
I added in some food coloring to make a distinction when the sugar is added and stirred.
