Day 3 - Crazy Colors

 Crashing Colors
We learned that milk is made up of molecules, tiny pieces that stick together.  These molecules stick together so closely it creates an invisible skin called, surface tension.  When you add food coloring, it sits on top of the milk’s surface. When the soap is added, it pulls the milk molecules apart and weakens the surface tension. The milk and soap molecules move around, and so does the food coloring creating a color explosion!

Color Mixing Fun!
After reading the book Little Blue and Little Yellow, we discovered what happens when you mix 2 primary colors together?

 The class also had fun mixing primary colored icings together using pretzel sticks.  When they were done they enjoyed eating their newly created colors!  
Yum, yum, yummy!
