Milk Mixer

What happens when you add a few drops of food coloring to water? What about milk? If you're in the mood for some psychedelic action, see what happens when you put some soap on the end of a toothpick and gently touch the surface of the milk.

We got off to a great start this week exploring these questions. First the kids had to learn how to measure liquid volumes using a dropper and a graduated cylinder. Graduated cylinder's kinda tough to say, but we counted, and it's still one less syllable than fancy schmancy measuring cup, so we all agreed to use the more scientific term. And of course, like all good scientists, we recorded our observations, results, and conclusions in our notebooks.
