17 Oct Skittles Investigations in Mexico
In Mexico class, we have been working scientifically through a variety of hands on experiments.
In this skittles investigation, we created a question based on our observations of materials: What will happen when I pour water over the skittles?
Next, we created a variety of hypothesises such as, I think that the colours of the skittles will dissolve, I think that that the colours of the skittles will make the water change colour.
After, we placed our safety glasses and lab coats on to observe the reaction.
We noticed that the colours from the skittles dissolved causing the water to change into a variety of colours. We also noticed that in some plates, there was a colour pattern and that the skittles also became smaller.
Do you think that the colours and skittles would dissolve quicker or slower if we used warmer water? Why?
