Our grandson Ben was visiting one day last week and we decided to do a science experiment. We named it "walking water".
Fist we set out seven glasses - four with colored water - red, yellow, blue and another red, and three empty. Next - folded paper towels into 2 inch strips, folded in half and cut just a bit taller than the glasses. Paper towels were placed into the cups - connecting each two cups all along the way.
We checked them about every half hour - the water began to rise up the paper towels from the filled glasses - going towards the empty glasses.
Another half hour and the water has traveled along the paper towels
After about an hour and a half you could begin to see the mixed colors in the previously empty glasses - glass 2 is orange - glass 4 is green - glass 6 is purple. The water has walked to the next glasses and mixed colors.
Moving the glasses into a circle we can see the result or our experiment. The two red glasses are next to each other when we circled them around. It was a fun day.
