What makes water evaporate ? Setting: We take a wet flanel and wipe our black board . Now we discuss how to get the blackboard dry again . Children have some ideas : Wiping with a dry flanel We are too impatient ! How can we fasten the project ? Just waiting ( normaly next schoolday the blackboard will be dry).

PowerPoint Presentation:

idea : we fawn with a paper and produce some wind, like the wind in summer drying the washing ! Puh, that is exhausting !!! idea : Turn on the heating This could work as water evaporates faster when it is warm. But we don‘t want to sweat and wait that long . What makes water evaporate ?
