Dissolving sugar and evaporating water

Mix some sugar in water again today. As the sugar dissolves, ask your child to predict what happens to the sugar. Next, boil the solution until the water evaporates and disappears. Now observe the sugar at the bottom of the pan. Wow! How’d that happen! Water became steam and the sugar reappeared! It’s not magic. It’s science.
