What is the effect of salt in boiling water? I have a science project and I am in 3rd grade.

Hi There Isabella
 If we place salt in water it will dissolve creating a salt water solution. If we use boiling water it will dissolve faster but it does not change. It is just still salt. The thing that changes is the water. It now tastes salty and is a tinier bit heavier.
 I spend some time every week doing hands-on science with 3rd and 4th graders and I would be glad to help you with your project if you wish
