In this STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Math) activity, kids will use art to learn about the sun’s role in evaporating water. It is great for little scientists of all ages!
Making a hypothesis and recording data are steps in the Scientific Method (I know at least half of my readers are probably groaning or cringing when they read this phrase!). But listen, the Scientific Method is what most standardized testing for our students is based around to get them ready for the Science portion of the ACT. The ACT/SAT may seem far off for your 5-yr-old… but imagine how great it would be if your kid starts school already feeling comfortable with science terms and using a scientific approach to problem solving!
