Experiment - Air Takes Up Space!

At the beginning of Christmas break, we picked up several science books from the library with loads of experiments. We did one at the beginning of break with an egg and vinegar that proved enlightening for ALL of us. Here is a quick photo account of our experiment earlier this week to demonstrate that air takes up space, even though you can not see it.

Garrett copied the date and title of our experiment in his book and drew pictures of his observations.
Cork floats.
Put cup over cork

Air in the cup displaces the water. Cork is not under water, but is at the bottom of the container. Science is cool :-)
And, just in case you were wondering, Summer ate berries and supervised while we did this
