The Early Years: Where Did the Water Go?
Ashbrook, Peggy
Science and Children, v47 n8 p19-20 Apr 2010
Everyday occurrences with evaporation are so ordinary that adults may not realize that children wonder about them and create explanations about what happens to water as wet objects dry. The process of evaporation is not visible, making it hard for young children to understand. Because they like to look for clues and participate in group wonderings, children can learn about evaporation through a series of activities and discussion, which is the objective of this month's lesson.
