ALL ABOARD: WE’RE GATHERING STEAM
This week’s area of focus is SCIENCE, and we’re making water balloons.
In this experiment, your child will learn about liquid density and why some balloons float or sink.
You will need:
- Sugary drink
- Diet sugary drink
- Large container
Once you have your materials, fill your balloons and label them. Then, fill your large container with water. After, have your child place the balloons in the large container with water and watch to see which ones float and which ones sink.
Sugary drinks sink, but why? This activity teaches children the scientific process that sugar-filled drinks sink because sugar is heavier. You can learn more here.
