Room 7 5th Class Rain Cloud Experiment

November 15, 2020

Ms O’Donnell’s 5th class tried a rain cloud experiment. They followed the following steps below.

Step one: Fill the vase ¾ full of water

Step two: Fill the top of water with white foamy shaving cream. Spread the shaving cream evenly so that it is flat at the top.

Step three: Mix a separate bowl of water and food colouring. Using a dropper or spoon, start adding the coloured water to the shaving cream.

Step four: Watch the cloud hold the coloured water until it becomes too heavy and the coloured water starts to rain!

Different amounts of shaving foam gave very different results!
