Science explore activity

In Science today, we did an Explore Activity that helped us understand how clouds form. Our experiment worked out great and the students did a great job observing and analyzing our results.

This is a very simple experiment that you can do at home. For this experiment you will need the following items: hot tap water, two identical clear containers, mug, and ice cubes.

Procedure: Chill container 1 by putting it in refrigerator or on ice for about ten minutes.

FIll a mug with hot water. Be careful handling the hot water!!

Fill container 2 with the hot water. Place empty cold container 1 upside down on top of container 2 with the water. Fit the mouths together carefully. Place the ice cubes on top of container 1.

Record your observations.
