Today we are going to make a star out of toothpicks. But really, all we are going to do is set up the materials and let water do all the work! From our other experiments, we have learned a lot of water and its properties. Let’s refresh ourselves on some of those properties before getting to our experiment.
Water & Its Uses– Primary (K-3)
Properties of Water– Intermediate (4th grade & above)
Wood, Water, and Properties by Crash Course Kids– Intermediate (4th grade & above)
Experiment Time: Toothpick Star Science Trick
Now it’s time time put the principles into action! Materials: 5 toothpicks, a cup of water, pipette/eye dropper/straw, plate to work on
