Colour with Years 5 & 6

Year 5 & 6 have been experimenting with colour. In this experiment, the children placed some Skittles in a petri dish and then filled them with water. Then they observed what happened, look at the results!

Y5 Smarties_4On Friday they tried the experiment again but changed one variable.  Changes included: using more Skittles, using lemonade instead of water and using Smarties instead of skittles. Can you see any changes?Y5 Smarties_3






Year 5 also experimented with celery and food dye. They placed sticks of celery in a jug of food dye overnight. The next day they split the celery to find out what had happened.
