Evaporation - Year 4

Year 4 enjoyed exploring EVAPORATION in Science this week with some practical experiments outdoors. Pouring water on the ground they marked the edges of the puddle with chalk. In ten minute intervals the children returned to the puddles to observe how much evaporation had occurred.  In addition to this Year 4 soaked some hand towels and pegged them in various positions around the playground, on the wall, in the sunshine, in a shady spot, they discovered that the handtowel on the fence dried the quickest.
