What to do

Gather a collection of objects that when immersed in water will feel and perhaps look different than before they were immersed.

Ask the child to hold the object and describe how it feels such as hard, soft, shiny, and rough.

Have the child place the object in the water and hold it under for a few seconds.

When the object is removed from the water, have the child describe the change in appearance, if any, and the change as to how it feels.


Make drawings of objects when they are wet and when they are dry.

Classify and chart objects that change in appearance when they get wet.
