Exploring Evaporation with the CE2s!

Exploring Evaporation with the CE2s!

Last week, the CE2 classes did a hands-on experiment in their science lessons to investigate the rate of evaporation in different parts of the playground.  In both shady and sunny parts of the playground, the students drew various shapes on the ground with chalk and ‘painted’ them in with water.  The classes then watched how long it took for the water to evaporate in the shade versus in the sun. They witnessed in real-time the power of the sun!  The next question: where does that water go???
