This week I’m joining the month-long Science Celebration at The Learning Hypothesis. Enjoy four weeks of science ideas, experiments, activities and a giveaway!
My high school science class memories have absolutely nothing to do with science. Both my biology and chemistry teachers were known for incessant lectures and assigning endless research. Therefore I often caught up on sleep (yes, I know that’s bad) and occasionally caught up on homework during this time.
I’m a visual and kinesthetic learner, doing, is crucial when I’m learning something new. I’m sad to say that since we hardly ever did any hands on learning, science class was the last place I wanted to be.
As a homeschool mom, I look back on high school science class, and I want to a) kick myself on the behind for napping in class, and b) make it a point to make science fun and relevant for my girls.
Salt Water Conductivity
Earlier this year we learned about the electrical conductivity properties of salt water. Electricity and water are not two things you typically want to pair-up; however adding salt to the mix makes this experiment interesting.
Before seeing how it all works, lets learn a little more about electricity and salt water.
