Nassakeag Elementary School kindergarten students in Adrienne D'Onofrio’s class learned about what makes rain during an interactive science lab experiment.

Following proper safety rules, the students filled a container with water and scooped shaving cream on top, then used a dropper to place colored water on top of the shaving cream. While observing, they noticed that the colored watered went through the shaving cream. They identified the colored water as representing the rain and the shaving cream as the clouds, and concluded that when the clouds are fuller, the moisture (rain) comes through them.
