Bubbles/Air Learning Activities

  1. Blow bubbles with soap mix.   Try to blow bubbles into a fan and see how far you can get them to go “ does it change if the fan is at low or high settings?   Watch bubbles combine and discuss molecules.   Can you catch bubbles with dry or wet hands.   Here are some more ideas.
