Session 2: Examining Liquid 2

  1. Have students repeat the preceding exploration using Liquid 2 (oil) and record their results in the second column on their worksheets.

  2. Afterwards, have the students answer the comparison questions at the bottom of the student page. Discuss student observations as a class. Ask, Did the two liquids behave in the same way? OR ask, Which liquid made round drops? How were the drops of each liquid alike? How were they different?
