Evaporation Investigation

Evaporation Investigation

Year 4 are currently studying the scientific topic of ‘States of Matter’ in which they have learnt about solids, liquids and gases and the processes that change one state into another.

During their most recent science lesson, they investigated how water (a liquid) changes into its gaseous state of water vapour through the process of evaporation.Through hanging their wet tea-towels out to dry in various locations, they found out that the sun’s heat causes evaporation to take place the quickest- and this is why we hang our washing out to dry when it is sunny!
