  • Take the test tube or thin bottle and slowly pour the cold salt water into the test tube till it fills to 1/4.
  • Slowly pour same quantity of cold water into it.
  • Slowly pour same quantity of the hot salt water into it.
  • Slowly pour same quantity of hot water into it.
  • Ask the child to observe what happens. It should form 4 different layers.
