The other night at dinner Princess brought up the subject of evaporation. She knows that water outside evaporates. However, she wasn't certain that water inside would evaporate. I suggested that we conduct an experiment to find out. Princess thought this was a fabulous idea.

Notice the black line marking the water level.
I bet you all are waiting on the edge of your seat with anticipation!! We are making daily observations and have found that, yes, the water does in fact evaporate even when it is inside the house!

We will continue to monitor the progress until all the water is gone...or we lose interest.


  1. Evil mama tip: Speed up the experiment by carrying around a straw & discreetly sipping a bit of the experiment water every time you walk past! >:-)))

  2. a very good question from an enquiring mind:)

  3. You are a sneaky one, Jennifer!

    I thought so, WCL. I love how excited Princess gets when she sees that some water has evaporated. =)

  4. What a great idea! I love her note too. :D

  5. Well Sheri, ya gotta protect the experiments! Yeah...we're having a blast living this unschooling life!!! :D
