Fine Motor and Science- Absorption Experimentation

absorption experiment
Yesterday we did an experiment exploring absorption. Absorption is when an object absorbs or soaks up a liquid. Yesterday we made it easy. Today we are really testing which objects absorb and which objects do not absorb.

The use of the pipette puts the hand in a pincer grasp and while coaxing the water into the pipette your child is using their fine motor skills. Also the picking up and moving of the cotton balls is using their fine motor skills as well

We used materials from around the house. So everyone will use different things I also split the tray so that objects that absorb are on one side and objects that repel the water are on the other side.
