Science Experiments: How clouds work

This term for science we are investigating the weather. Each day we look at and discuss the weather whilst filling in our weather chart.
Last week, we focused on clouds. Students learnt about how a cloud holds (is made from) moist air. When the cloud can’t hold anymore moist air, it begins to rain.
Our materials used:
– Cups
– Shaving cream
– Coloured water
– Normal water

Method:
1. Fill your cup with water.
2. Squirt some shaving cream (the cloud) into the cup so it sits on top of the water.
3. Pour a little bit of the coloured water into the cup.
4. Continue to pour the coloured water into the cup to see it begin to rain!

Here are some photos from our fantastic experiment that engaged all of us!
