Water Absorption Science Experiment
What absorbs water? What does not?
Simple water science experiment set up.On a low table, I put out the following materials in no particular order for our water science experiment: sponge, styrofoam tray, napkin, wax paper, sock, zip lock bag, paper towel, saran wrap, construction paper, aluminum foils and of course cotton balls! I also set out a bowl of colored water (better to observe with colored water) and an eye dropper for precise experimentation. Very simple set up. Use what you have in your cupboards, closet and recycling bin!
Simple water science experiment testing.First, I had him guess which materials might absorb the water and which might repel the water. I was looking forward to his reactions as he tested each material. We began the water science experiment by carefully filling the eye dropper and putting some water onto each material.
Simple water science experiment observationsHere is what we learned! As we tested each item with the water, I asked him what he thought. Did it absorb water? Did it not absorb the water? He definitely understood the difference and we had fun checking out what each one did!
Water Science Experiment: What Absorbs Water!
What does not absorb water!To wrap up our water science experiment, he engaged in some free play. He experimented with different colors, adding more water to different materials, and using the sponge to pick up water!
