We did a skittles experiment last week with Room 6. It were trying to find out what happened to skittles when we added them to water. First we separated the hot coloured skittles and the cool coloured skittles. Next we created a pattern with skittles around the outside edges of a paper. Then we carefully poured enough water into the bowl for it to be touching the skittles. Last we waited and watched....
We found out the the outside coloured shell on the skittles dissolved into the water and made some interesting marbled patterns. We are learning about the word dissolving. We know some other things that dissolve, like raro juice sachets.
Here are some of the patterns we made with our skittles:
