Sort and Count Maths Bottles - The Imagination Tree
this is one of my favorite science activities and the children love it!
Everyday Art: Science project: Food-dye Color Wheel
Human Body: Learning About Blood blood-model = Jar of water dyed yellow: plasma Cheerios: red blood cells. I squirted red food coloring on them while dry and put in a small ziplock bag. Then when they were added to the plasma, they turned the water red (which is why blood looks red—because of the red blood cells) Marshmallows: white blood cells Purple pom poms: platelets
pour whole milk and add red bull - let sit 5 minutes and the acid in the red bull will cause the protein in the milk to separate - liquid changing to solid!
OOBLECK. This stuff is amazing. Mix 2 cups of cornstarch and 1 cup water in a bowl. To color oobleck, add a few drops of food coloring to the water before adding to the cornstarch. Takes some effort to mix the water and cornstarch. Oobleck defies Newton’s third law of motion–for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. If you quickly smack oobleck with your hand it immediately turns into a solid, instead of splashing or moving. If you slowly move oobleck it reacts like a liquid.
Magic Mud: Mix 2 cups cornstarch & 1 cup water in a bowl. To color it, add a few drops of food coloring to the water before adding the cornstarch. Takes some effort to mix the water & cornstarch. This defies Newton’s 3rd law of motion – for every action, there is an equal & opposite reaction. If you quickly smack it with your hand it immediately turns into a solid, instead of splashing or moving. If you slowly move it reacts like a liquid.
Science experiment: Watch as the blue and yellow water travel up the paper towel, making its way into the empty cup to make green water.
