Learn Science Variables with the Walking Water Experiment

Thursday, February 28, 2019

Walking water is a fun experiment that you can use to teach or learn all about Science variables.
You can use the experiment in order to review independent, dependent, and control or constant variables.

In the experiment "walking water" paper towels are set in cups.
In addition, every other cup is empty, and food coloring is added to every other cup. In order to introduce the independent variable, I used two types of water. I used freshwater and saltwater.
I then let it sit for several hours.

Over time water moves from the cup with water to the empty cup with the help of the paper towels.

In order to demonstrate the dependent variable, I measured the amount of water that moved to the empty cups. The amount of water that moves to the empty cup depends on the type of water used which is the independent variable.

The control variables are variables that should be kept the same. These include the same cup, the same amount of water, and the same paper towels.

You can remember how to graph the variables properly using

  • Dependent
  • Responding
  • Y-axis

  • Manipulated
  • Independent
  • X-axis
