For our science lesson today, we did a Color Changing Milk experiment. By the way, the Steve Spangler Science is a great website for easy science experiments that can be done at home. The website has many videos of different experiments. Not only do my kids enjoy doing science experiments, I enjoy learning alongside them. Thanks to my husband who found the website for me!!!
The children learned that milk is composed of water, vitamins, minerals, protein, and fat. When the soap molecules are introduced, the bonds in the protein are weakened and the soap tries to bond with the fat molecules in the milk. This reaction creates a swirling movement of all the colors in the milk.
