Winter has just arrived (down here in the Southern Hemisphere!) so we've been doing some weather science in the classroom! Water, a jar, shaving cream and some blue watercolour paint (or food colouring) are all that you need to start learning about rain! The water in the jar represents the atmosphere, with the layer of shaving cream acting as the cloud. As the liquid colour is squeezed onto the top of the "cloud" it becomes heavier until eventually the cloud bursts and the "rain" starts to fall down. A really simple first exploration of weather patterns - and an almost hypnotic visual attraction to watch! #mymontessoripreschool #montessoriscience #montessoristem #stemeducation
