⁣Lesson Plan: Amazing Water Tricks & Science Experiments

Grade Level: K-12

Subject: Science

Duration: 60 minutes

Common Core Standards:
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.3.2: Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.
- CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.6-8.3: Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments.

Lesson Objectives:
- Students will be introduced to various water tricks and science experiments.
- Students will learn about the properties of water and the scientific principles behind the tricks and experiments.
- Students will be able to conduct the water tricks and experiments on their own, following step-by-step instructions.

- Clear glass or cup
- Water
- Food coloring
- A small piece of cardboard or index card
- A plastic bottle with a cap
- A small balloon
- A small plastic bag
- A marker
- A toothpick

1. Begin the lesson by discussing the properties of water, such as its ability to change states (solid, liquid, gas) and its cohesive and adhesive properties.
2. Introduce the students to various water tricks and science experiments, such as the following:
a. Magic Water Glass: Fill a glass with water and carefully place a small piece of cardboard or index card on top of the glass. Quickly turn the glass upside down while holding the cardboard in place. Remove your hand from the cardboard, and the water will stay in the glass!
b. Color Changing Water: Fill a glass with water and add a few drops of food coloring. Stir the water and observe how the color spreads and mixes.
c. Water Bottle Fountain: Fill a plastic bottle with water, leaving some space at the top. Attach a small balloon to the opening of the bottle. Squeeze the bottle to force the water into the balloon, then release to see the water squirt out like a fountain.
d. Water and Plastic Bag Trick: Fill a plastic bag with water and gently poke a toothpick through both sides of the bag. The water will not leak out due to the cohesive properties of water molecules.
e. Floating Marker: Fill a glass with water and place a marker in the water. Observe how the marker floats instead of sinking.
3. Provide step-by-step instructions for each trick and experiment, allowing students to perform them individually or in small groups.
4. After each trick or experiment, engage the students in a discussion about the scientific principles at play, such as air pressure, cohesion, and buoyancy.
5. Encourage students to record their observations and explanations in a science journal or worksheet.

- Observe students' engagement and participation during the activity.
- Review students' science journal entries or worksheets for understanding of the scientific principles behind the water tricks and experiments.
