Science: What makes thunder & Lightning?

Today we are going to learn what makes thunder and lightning.

To begin the session you will need to begin writing a science report by writing in the purpose of the session… I wonder how thunderstorms form?

Next you will fill in your hypothesis by writing a prediction about what makes thunder… I think…

You will then write in the materials we need:

  • A clear container
  • Warm water
  • A blue ice-block
  • Red food dye

The procedure for the session is:

  1. Fill the plastic container with 2/3 full with warm water.
  2. Let the water sit for one minute.
  3. Place a blue ice cube at one end of the container.
  4. Add three drops of red food colouring to the water at the other end of the plastic container.
  5. Watch what happens.

We will then complete our results and conclusion.
