Salt and Water

This week we are learning about the salty water in the Arctic Ocean.
We used chalk to make the salt change colors and made salt art (just like sand art)

We worked hard using our finger muscles to stir the salt until it was colored.

Slowly we filled our jars with layers of colored salt.

We are also exploring ice in the table. Se can see how it changes size and volume as it melts.

We did a science experiment where we had to make a prediction on what would happen when we mixed salt and water. We were surprised that the salt looked like it disappeared. We used our sense of taste to see that the salt was still there. We learned that the salt didn't disappear it just dissolved.

We used our journals to draw something wintery or from the Arctic then we wrote the words to go with our picture

We also made pipe cleaner sculptures to put in our salt water solution to see what happens to the salt.
