WOW Water

Type : Virtual School Program
Grade : 2
Duration : 45 minutes
Capacity : one group, maximum 35 students
Price : $150 per group
Language : English only

Water is life! Study the properties of water and learn how they are important to our daily lives. Hone your observation and prediction skills through experimentation as you uncover the connection between water and human actions. Plus, learn the importance of protecting life-giving water.

Schedule until June 24, 2022:

Our programs have ended for the 2021-22 school year. Sign up for our Teacher eNews to get updates on what we're planning for the fall.

Curriculum Connections:

Strand : Understanding Matter and Energy
2.2 Investigate the properties of liquids (e.g., conduct experiments to compare the rate at which different liquids flow) and solids (e.g., conduct experiments to find out ways in which solids can be changed)
2.3 Investigate, through experimentation, interactions that occur as a result of mixing and/or dissolving liquids and solids (e.g., salt and water, sand and water), liquids and liquids (e.g., oil and water), and solids and solids (e.g., salt and sand)
2.4 Use scientific inquiry/experimentation skills (see page 12) to investigate liquids and solids in terms of their capacity for buoyancy (e.g., wood floats, coins sink) and/or absorption (e.g., paper towel absorbs liquid, plastic wrap repels liquid)
3.3 Describe the characteristics of liquid water (e.g., it takes the shape of the container it is in) and solid water (e.g., ice floats), and identify the conditions that cause changes from one to the other (e.g., water turns to ice when the temperature goes below zero; ice turns to water when heated
3.4 Identify conditions in which the states of liquids and solids remain constant (e.g., solids remain solid when broken; liquids remain liquid when poured) and conditions that can cause their states to change (e.g., liquids may freeze when the temperature drops; solids may melt when heated
