#Montessori #homeschool Students worked hard to get ready for the presentation to City Council next Wednesday. Just one more run through before we ask Mr. Mayor (Mike Clay) to forgive the $190 special events fee for the lemonade stand, so we can give more to charity!
Students had an introduction to density through a salt water density experiment. Using salt, water, an eyedropper and a few other kitchen utensils, they began to understand that a salt solution is 'heavier' than a plain water solution. They observed the difference between adding weaker salt solutions above stronger ones (i.e. layering), and adding stronger salt solutions above weaker ones (i.e. mixing). Still trying to figure out a way to use this concept in our lemonade stand, as the layers can be quite beautiful and lots of fun!
