Home Connections

  • Try a “sink and float” experiment: gather an assortment of small items, predict which items will sink and which will float, and test by placing each item in a container of water.
  • Discuss whether there is water in the foods and beverages that your families eat and drink. Cook together and discuss the ways in which water is used to prepare meals. 
  • Discuss the weather each day and identify whether or not it is raining or snowing.  Chart observations on a tally chart.  
  • Turn off the lights at night for a few minutes and discuss what you can see without the lights on.
