Wet/dry experiments

April showers bring May flowers. But they also bring opportunities to experiment with water. We will be looking at how things are affected by rain, as well as things that behave differently when wet or dry.

For example, we played with sidewalk chalk last week outside when it was sunny. We brought water with us to show how the chalk's texture changes on a wet sidewalk.

Today we are using sidewalk chalk indoors on our chalk board to see how chalk draws on it both dry, then after the board has been wiped with a wet cloth.

Today in our Easter theme activities, we will continue to dye Easter eggs, this time the children will be using crayons to learn about how colours change when dipping from one to the next.
