During our study of the spring season, we learned about the different clouds in the sky. While researching different experiments, I found this great activity on the Steve Spangler site. Did you know that you can make a cloud out of a bar of Ivory soap? I was amazed! It has to be a bar of Ivory soap and if you microwave it for 90 seconds (place it on a paper plate) it forms into the shape of a cloud. The kids loved it!!! You could hear the ooohs and aahs all over our school building.
I made my own lab sheet for their lab books (composition notebooks).
Here you go! Click on the picture.
After the experiment, we pasted the sheet into our books and answered the questions. Here is what the soap looks like after it heats up in the microwave!
