    If you know me well, you know I love science experiments!  I found this neat little experiment on Pinterest to share with you tonight.  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!  What a great addition to your weather unit.  I already did my weather unit but can't wait to add this to it n...

    Weather experiment: 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!?

    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. Just in time or my weather unit this week! I thought this was a really cool experiment that I must do with my students to introduce a weather topic or even the water cycle!

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).

Water cycle in a cup. Put shaving cream on top of water for clouds. Pour blue food coloring over it to show that when clouds get too heavy, they rain.

These clouds are super simple to create and offer an up-close look at how clouds collect moisture that turns into rain {or other types of precipitation} and falls to the ground. It also provides a fun opportunity for discussing the different types of clouds.
