Activities to complete at home:

Can you create a solid, liquid and a gas yourself? Send your pictures to our class email!  year4@st-bartholomews.lancs.sch.uk 

 

This activity will allow the children to apply their learning of evaporation and allow for further discussion of this abstract concept.

  • Ask your child to wet one of their hands in a bowl of water, remove and then gently shake. They should then place their wet hand on a paper towel, drawing around the hand print every minute. Ask them to watch what happens and discuss where all the water has gone. To add to the challenge, you could do this once using warm water and once using cold water. What differences do they notice about how quickly the water ‘evaporates’?

 

  • Provide 20ml of water. Challenge them to design a way to make the water evaporate quickly. Who can make their water evaporate the quickest? What do they think will make it evaporate quicker? Questions can be used to get your child thinking e.g. what would be the best container to put the water in? What would be the best place to put the water? What else might help? Have some suggestions ready on a card, to support, such as:

Would the better container be a small container or a large, shallow container?

Would it be better to put it inside or outside?

Would it better to be in a cooler or a warmer place?

Think about washing drying on a line – what makes a good drying day? How can you create your own wind? Where would washing dry the quickest in the school/school grounds? Children could go on to test small pieces of material hung on a makeshift washing line – how long do they take to dry?
