Pour IT IN! Liquid Illusion for preschoolers and kindergarteners is a fun kids science experiment to explore the property of liquid and promote STEM education.
STEM activities for kids is an awesome way to ignite curiosity and promote STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math.) Most importantly, this fun Liquid Illusion Kids Science experiment on the property of liquid will require no specialized materials as you can readily use items around the house.
WHAT You’ll need for this Liquid Illusion Kids Science:
- identical test tubes (buy here and a stand here)
- food coloring
- clear glass containers of different size and shape
HOW to conduct this STEM activity for kids:
First, while Adrian has a blindfold on, Julia pours colored water in different containers. Adrian then had to guess which container holds more liquid? However, after pouring the water back into its original test tubes, Adrian sees that each container was holding the same amount of liquid.
Revealing the science mystery of this Liquid Illusion experiment. First of all, liquids can flow. As such, they take the shape of the containers they are in. Interestingly, the amount of liquid can look greater or smaller depending on the size and shape of the container it is poured into. Thus, a shallow wide dish can have an illusion of having less liquid than the container that is taller.
