Swirling Water

Last week, I shared my new love of photographing science supplies
and a few days later I shared an ongoing science experiment.     

This is a final look (for now, I think) at our science projects captured in photographs.
While reading a book about water, my daughter and I stumbled onto this experiment.
We decided to give it a try.

Gathering the necessary supplies: clear water, colored water, and a clear jar,
we started the demonstration.

Carefully, using a water colored blue,
she placed a few drops gently on the top of clear water sitting still in a jar.

We were to watch how water, at room temperature,
swirls and moves all on its own. 

Next, we observed...

~ we took lots of photographs, the fun part (in my opinion) ~

 and it worked!

This by far was my favorite science observation to photograph. 
I never knew water in a jar could be so much fun and look so interesting! 

 Oh, and yes, my daughter learned from her observations...
and got a few great photographs of her own.

  1. What a great idea! I'll do that later with the girls I'm sure they will LOVE it!!!

  2. wow! great photos - and I think I'm going to try this with my daughter, who currently loves anything and everything that involves water!

  3. What a great way to learn.. Solute, solvent.. etc.. that is advanced chemistry broken down...What a great post!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
