3. Properties of water
 Like all matter, water is
made up of atoms.
Atoms attach together,
or bond, to form
bonded to an oxygen
atom form a water
molecule. Water has
several properties that
make it a very unique
4. Where we use water.
 We wake up in the morning, take a
shower, brush our teeth, grab a cup of
coffee and head out for the day. Water
is an important part of our daily lives
and we use it for a wide variety of
purposes, but do we really understand
how much we use?
5. Where we use water.
 The average American family uses more than 300
gallons of water per day at home. Roughly 70 percent
of this use occurs indoors. Nationally, outdoor water
use accounts for 30 percent of household use yet can
be much higher in drier parts of the country and in
more water-intensive landscapes. For example, the
arid West has some of the highest per capita
residential water use because of landscape irrigation.

8. Experimenting with water.
 What You Need:
large clear container, jar or vase
9. Experimenting with water.
 What To Do:
1. Fill your container with water and set aside.
2. Pour oil into a dish and add drops of food color. Use your
spoon to mix. We opted to keep our colors separate.
 3. Scoop the mixed oil and food color mixture into your water.
 4. Observe what happens. The oil and water don't mix but the
food color separates itself from the oil and mixes into the water,
 Wasn't that simple? Activities don't have to take hours of prep or
involve lots of materials to be meaningful, fun and engaging for
kids. The Lil Divas loved this simple exploration and did it a few
times over, yet it only took me 2 minutes to prep. Yay!
