Ethan's Preschool Lesson
Yesterday at Cottage Garden, Miss Rae Lynn taught Ethan (and the rest of the class) about evaporation. I'm not exactly sure what they did, but I saw her carrying a jar of paint brushes. So I'm suspecting they may have written their names on the sidewalk with water & a paint brush & then watched it evaporate.
I saw the class coming in the church right after their experiment & Miss Rae Lynn said, "Ethan, tell your mom what we learned." He said, "My name just evaporated!"
Wow! What a big word for a 4 year old!
I wasn't sure if he really understood the concept until we discussed it after school. He said that they wrote their names and then they disappeared into the air.
Fast forward to tonight after bath time...
Ethan decided he wanted to take a bath in our big bath tub. He enjoyed playing & splashing quite a bit of water. I noticed as I was getting him out of the tub that he somehow managed to splash or squirt water all over the ceiling! I told him Daddy was not going to be happy about that.
After he got dressed for bed, he came up to me & said, "It's ok, Mommy! That water will just evaporate!"
I think he gets the concept!
