1. Introduce the lesson by explaining the properties of water and its importance in everyday life.
2. Show a video or present images of water tricks and experiments, engaging students' curiosity.
3. Explain to the students that they will be conducting 15 different water tricks and experiments, one at a time.
4. Divide the students into small groups and provide each group with the necessary materials for the first experiment.
5. Demonstrate the first experiment, explaining the steps and scientific principles involved. For example, creating a rainbow in a cup by adding different colors of food coloring.
6. Instruct the students to follow the procedure precisely, making observations and documenting their findings in a notebook or worksheet.
7. Allow time for each group to conduct the experiment, guiding them through any challenges or questions they may have.
8. Once each group has completed the first experiment, gather as a whole class to discuss the results and the scientific principles behind each experiment.
9. Repeat steps 5-8 for the remaining experiments, allowing students to rotate materials and roles within their groups.
10. Encourage students to ask questions, make predictions, and draw conclusions based on their observations and findings.
11. At the end of the lesson, have students reflect on their favorite experiment and why they found it interesting or surprising.

- Evaluate students' understanding of the scientific principles behind each experiment through class discussions and their ability to document observations and findings.
- Monitor students' engagement and participation during the experiments.
