Colored Rain

This week I only had kids Monday and Tuesday.  Today is a furlough day...whoever chose October 31st for a furlough day was brilliant!  So during our short week, we did a science experiment connected to clouds.  Not sure where the original source of this project came from, I found instructions in an old science idea binder of mine.  You layer water and shaving cream.  Then drop food coloring onto the shaving cream.  When the "cloud" gets to heavy, colored rain happens.

Love this kid's intent observation.   And I am leaving you with the page we used to work through the scientific process.
Happy Wednesday,


  1. My kids were wound up today! I knew they would be, so I gave them lots of bouncy activities!! I love the bottom picture. He is so excited about the results...Priceless!

  2. I've seen that activity on Pinterest and I want to try it out when we have our weather unit. Love the recording sheet!

  3. This is awesome!! Oh my gosh! I might do this even though we don't teach weather. :) Thanks for this great idea and for stopping by.
