⁣Lesson Plan: Amazing Water Tricks & Science Experiments

Grade Level: 2-4

Subject: Science

Duration: 45 minutes

Common Core Standards:
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.2.3: Describe the connection between a series of historical events, scientific ideas or concepts, or steps in technical procedures in a text.
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.2.2: Write informative/explanatory texts in which they introduce a topic, use facts and definitions to develop points, and provide a concluding statement or section.

Lesson Objectives:
- Students will explore various water tricks and conduct simple science experiments to learn about the properties of water.
- Students will understand the scientific concepts behind each experiment and be able to explain the steps and outcomes.
- Students will develop their scientific observation and critical thinking skills.

- Clear plastic cups or containers
- Water
- Food coloring (optional)
- Small objects (coins, paper clips, buttons)
- Plastic wrap
- Straw
- Index card
- Dropper or spoon
- Paper towels

1. Begin the lesson by discussing the properties of water and its importance in our daily lives.
2. Introduce the concept of water tricks and science experiments to engage students' interest.
3. Demonstrate and explain each experiment one by one, allowing students to observe and ask questions.
a. The Magic Leakproof Bag: Fill a clear plastic bag with water, seal it tightly, and poke a straw through the bag without any water leaking out.
b. The Floating Paper Clip: Fill a clear plastic cup with water and place a paper clip gently on the surface of the water, observing its floating behavior.
c. The Rainbow Glass: Fill several clear plastic cups with water, add different colors of food coloring to each cup, and slowly pour the cups together to create a colorful layered effect.
d. The Water Droplet Race: Place an index card on the edge of a table and slightly hang it over the edge. Use a dropper or spoon to carefully drop water on the card, observing the speed and path of the water droplets.
e. The Upside Down Water Glass: Fill a glass with water, cover the opening with a piece of plastic wrap, and quickly turn the glass upside down. Remove your hand from the plastic wrap, and the water won't spill out!
4. Allow students to work in pairs or small groups to recreate the experiments using their own materials.
5. Encourage students to record their observations and outcomes in their science notebooks, using labeled diagrams and written explanations.
6. Have students share their findings and discuss the scientific concepts behind each experiment as a class.

- Observe students' engagement and participation during the experiments.
- Review students' science notebooks to assess their understanding of the scientific concepts and ability to explain the experiments.
