Mrs. Z's 5th Grade Science Project!

Project Question -

Does an electric bulb help evaporate water faster?

You need couple of electric bulbs, preferably with high watts, 2 glass jars, and electric sockets.


Keep one jar filled with water in regular lighting, like the sun or the natural light in your room.


Follow the procedure for the second jar and this time, keep it exposed to the electric bulb.


Take measurements at different intervals and note your findings to make a conclusion.


Bring your findings to class no later than 10/31.  You have 2 weeks to complete this assignment and you can work on the project at home.  Have fune with it!  Ask your family and friends to join you.  It will be amazing what you discover!!
