It's about time for a science experiment. This is one of the coolest, easiest, most amazing science experiments that you can do in your classroom or virtually.
You will need:

1 bar of Ivory soap

1 plate (paper or glass)


Put the bar of soap on a plate. Place in the microwave for 90 seconds. (I actually only did it for 70 seconds.) Observe. Talk about magic! The soap will turn into a mass that looks like a fluffy cloud. Remove, cool, and then explore the texture.



Hint! Invite the children to record what the soap looks like before and after microwaving.
*What caused the change? 

Cloud Watch
Give children clipboards, blue paper, and a white piece of chalk. Go out on the playground and challenge them to draw the clouds in the sky. Can they predict what the weather will be from observing the clouds?  

There are many informative books about clouds, as well as whimsical tales like CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS, IT LOOKED LIKE SPILT MILK, and THE LITTLE CLOUD. 

I also found some free videos and resources if you want to learn more about clouds:

Come back tomorrow for more science activities to do with clouds.
