Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Drink All the Milk
Empty and clean a gallon milk container. Don't just dump out the milk. Drink it. But not all at once. Then fill clean gallon with water.
Step 2: Remove Toilet Lid
Remove the toilet lid and it should look something like this. Many new toilets have flush assist devices or a dual flush option to help save water. This is for regular old toilets.
Step 3: Place Gallon in Tank
FLUSH the toilet to empty the tank before placing water filled milk jug inside. Keep away from moving parts. Let fill with water and see how you've displace the tank water with the jug. Place lid back on and we're done.
Step 4: Alternative Methods
If a Gallon won't fit use a half gallon, soda bottle or even a brick. Anything that will displace water saving you $$, pennies may it be, in the end.
