Hooked on Science - Huff and puff water bottle

September 10th thru September 16th

INGREDIENTS

• Small Neck Bottle
• Piece of Paper

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: Tear off a small piece of paper. Crumple the small piece of paper into a wad. Describe and classify the paper by its observable properties.
STEP 2: Place the bottle on its side. Describe and classify the bottle and its contents by their observable properties.
STEP 3: Put the crumpled piece of paper, loosely, into the neck of the bottle. Make sure the wad of paper is close to the opening.
STEP 4: Using the air from your mouth, attempt to blow the wad of paper into the bottle and observe. Describe how this can be used as a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.

EXPLANATION

Air takes up space and has mass. While the bottle looks empty, it’s actually filled with air. The air from your mouth hits the air inside the bottle, bounces off, and pushes the wad of paper out of the bottle, instead of inside the bottle.

SCIENCE SAFETY

PLEASE follow these safety precautions when doing any science experiment.

• ALWAYS have an adult present.
• ALWAYS wear the correct safety gear while doing any experiment.
• NEVER eat or drink anything when performing any experiment.
• REMEMBER experiments may require marbles, small balls, balloons, and other small parts. Those objects could become a CHOKING HAZARD. Adults are to perform those experiments using these objects. Any child can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Keep uninflated or broken balloons away from children.

Thanks,
