We brought in a lava lamp and asked the children, “How do you think the light will change when it is turned on?” The children created their own drawings of what their predictions were and then watched the lamp change throughout the day. They noticed that the warmer it got the move the “lava” moved around and made different shapes.
Here are some things they said:
I think it will change color. -Xavier
It will get bigger! -Gianna
I see the bubbles! -Dorion
The bubbles are moving around! -Jesus
