Walking Water Experiment

For writing, Room 5 wrote instructions for a science experiment called "The Walking Water Experiment." Last week Room 5 conducted the experiment and recorded their observations. 


Walking Water Science Experiment
by: Eric Wu


Purpose:to find out how water absorbs liquid
Materials:
  • 3 glass cups (Has to be same height)
  • Paper towels
  • Food colouring
  • Spoons
  • Water
  • eye-droppers
Method:
  1. Get your two strips of paper towels.
  1. Fold in half twice until it is the correct width (about 1 or 2 inches wide).
  1. Place your two folded strips aside.
  1. Grab your 3 glass cups and put them in a row.
  1. Carefully pour the water into the cup until it’s half way full.
  1. Put the one strip into the side and the other strip in the other cup.
  1. Wait for an hour or two.
  1. Check your experiment results.


Tips and hints:


Tip: try NOT to get the dye on your shirt or your Mums going to
be mad.


Tip: Use two primary colours for the food colouring
e.g Blue and yellow


Tip: The longer you wait,the more water there will be in the middle glass.


Observations:
You will see that the water has ‘walked’ to the middle glass and made a different colour.


Conclusion: The paper towels can absorb liquids and move water.
