Preschool STEAM – Winter Science – Week 7

February 22, 2021 @ 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Save the Penguins! – Save the penguins using just salt and ice.

Items included in your kit:  4 penguin erasers and salt.

Items you will need from home: small bowl or tupperware container, water, spoon or dropper (from previous kits) and food coloring. ** NOTE** Adults will need to freeze the penguins in water in the small container, and have it ready on a plate or cookie sheet.

Join Ms. Joanne on Facebook LIVE at 10:30 a.m. to hear a story and do the experiment together!  https://www.facebook.com/Benningtonlibrary/

Directions for experiment if you are doing the program without watching the LIVE show on Facebook:

Week Seven-Save the Penguins

**If you have not put the penguins in a bowl of water to freeze, please do that now and you can do the experiment later.**

Once the ice is ready with the penguins trapped inside, remove from the bowl if possible and place it upside down on a cookie tray.  In two small bowls, add a good amount of food coloring to warm water.  Put salt on a plate or in a bowl.  Have your child slowly add the warm water onto the ice (you can use a spoon or a dropper) then add some salt where the water was dropped.  Watch how the salt will begin to melt the ice.  Continue the process until the penguins have been freed!
