Does it Dissolve? {Pinterest Classroom Project}

9:00 AM

Welcome to my series "Pinterest Classroom Project"! This series is based around my cooking series. "Pinterest Test Kitchen". Every other month, I post four classroom projects or experiments and let all of you vote for one week on which you'd most like to see tested. This month's winner was "Does it Dissolve" which was originally created by Coffee Cups and Crayons, click here to view the full post.

This project is a great base experiment that can easily be adjusted depending on the age of the children and the grade level. I found that it worked very well as a group experiment with our homeschooling group and mixed well with having children of different ages involved. The best part is the results and items you can use are fairly endless and very customize-able. I also combined this experiment in with our current science studies.

What You'll Need:
- Clear cups or glasses
- Note cards
- Random liquids, solids, etc. for dissolving
- Spoons, for mixing

The way we prepared for this experiment was by allowing each child to have a clipboard and a sheet of paper to put their hypothesis down. We used the note cards in front of the glasses to indicate the more popular opinion that each child had. As we went through each cup, we discussed the results and explained why it did or did not dissolve. The kids loved being hands on with the project and seeing how density was working first hand. I really liked how kids of many different age groups were able to follow along and grasp the project with ease.

I highly recommend this project for any and all homeschoolers!

Down in the comments, let me know what materials your kids would like to test in this experiment.
