Wish teachers could teach using lessons like this instead of teaching to pass a state mandated test!!!!!!!!!!!! Weather: Fill the cup with water. Put shaving cream on top for a cloud. Explain that when clouds get really heavy with water, it rains! Then put blue food coloring on top of the cloud, and watch it rain. Kids love experiments! WEATHER UNIT @Alyssa Umscheid!?
Teaches about clouds and rain. Fill glass 2/3 the way up with water. Top off with shaving cream. Drop blue food coloring onto the shaving cream until it starts to drip through. Explain that clouds are full of rain, but when they get too heavy, they release the rain (blue food coloring).
Fill a cup with water and put shaving cream on top to act as a cloud. Explain to students that when clouds get really heavy with water, it starts to rain. Add some blue food coloring drops to the top of the shaving cream and watch it start to rain!
To make a raining rainbow fill a clear container with water and cover the top with shaving cream. Drip food coloring onto the top of the shaving cream. Then, watch and wait until the rainbow begins to rain through the cloud of shaving cream. We were so excited when the colors started "raining" down from our cloud of shaving cream!
