It was a big washing day today at Jumble House and, because we don’t have a garden, that means clothes hung from every window plus a drier in the bathroom.
Lizzie Witch saw this as an excellent opportunity to teach us all about evaporation and steam and condensation.

Lizzie left us with a challenge and hear a a couple more:
1. Water evaporates more quickly when it is warm than when it is cool. Can you think of a way to,prove that this statement is true?
2. Take two identical pieces of cloth. Soak them in water and then squeeze the water out. Place one in a sealed plastic bag and spread the other out on the floor in a sunny place. What do you think will happen by the same time tomorrow?
Check every couple of hours, record what you see and explain the results.
