Materials

  • plastic container or bowl
  • plastic cup
  • water





Directions

  • Add water to the plastic container.
  • Turn the cup upside down.
  • Push the cup into the water. (The cup will NOT fill up with water.)
  • Turn the cup to one side.
  • What happens? ( Air escapes from the cup and rises to the top. Bubbles come out of the cup. The bubbles are made from air.)
