Developing Observation Skills
Experiments help children develop basic science skills like observing what is happening, using words to describe what they notice, and repeating the action to compare results. Questioning and posing answers are skills used every day in the classroom.
Bubbles have one shape. In a bucket or tub, make a bubble solution with dish soap. Using a variety of oddly shaped objects—such as cookie cutters, a loop of string, and a straw—teach your children how to dip their object in the water and blow through it to make a bubble. Experiment with blowing fast and slow. Ask, “Which method works better?” Have students look at the shape of the bubble maker before they use it. Ask, “What shape do you think the bubble will be?” No matter what shape the object, the bubble will always be round due to liquid surface tension.
