Fourth of July: Science Journal

Let's dive into Fourth of July: 18 Hands-On Activities.

We are going to take a look at a science based activity.

Before you get started you will need to freeze a bunch of trinkets in a container with water. You can make this as fancy as you would like. You can freeze it in layers to make it different colors.

With our bucket I added food coloring on top of the ice and then added the water. It made a great blue layer!

Once it was frozen I put the ice in a container and grabbed a squirt bottle and some salt. We headed outside.

We squirted away and shook on some salt. After a while their hands go tired and started to just pull at the trinkets to get everything out.

Although just this is fun, you can also use this science journal to explain the activity and take it a step further.

This journal will help walk the youngest learners through a science experiment.  It teaches that frozen water is a solid and is called ice.

As the children fill in the science journal they will learn about first, then and "in the end".  It also has a page for I learned that.

This journal is perfect for the youngest of learners since you can have them use pictures or words.
