Water, water everywhere! Five activities that thoroughly explore water as a solid, a liquid and a gas. Make ice balls using balloons and watch the children explore the effect of heat, salt and time on the melting process. Students explore surface tension of water droplets, a unique property of water and essential for so many life processes. Evaporation is explored using puddles and mirrors, and students make a model water cycle in a plastic bag. The last activity links social science as students explore freshwater allocation uses and discuss possible effects on natural ecology as a direct result of human interaction.
