Water Temp.

Have 4 cups of water, record current water temp., then add salt, sugar, flour, and vinegar, one in each cup, so you can predict and record the change in temp.

Betta experience

Get an adult male betta, adult female betta, and a baby betta at a local petstore(petco is good). Keep them all in separate but identical tanks. Make sure the water temperature is the same in the 3 tanks. See which fish learns to go through a hoop the quickest and document every training session :)

How to Make a fire in a glass of water

experiment requirements: 1- empty glass 2- water. 3- alcohol, like spirto or colon. 4- lighter. steps: S1- add a small amount of alcohol in the glass and keep mixing it until the alcohol's color is just like water. S2- fill the glass with water so the alcohol floats on the surface of the water. S3- close the lighter to the glass's surface and then watch fire catches in the water!! this is a really cool idea to make, but be careful that the burning alcohol dosen't touch your hand or something.
