After investigating & learning a bit about whole milk and how dish soap works the children were asked to predict what would happen when we dropped food coloring into the milk with our without dish soap. We then added small drops of dish soap to the food coloring. The food color reaction to this small addition of soap surprised them. They were then asked to carefully draw what they observed and noticed using color and detail.
They were then asked to generate additional questions or ways we can test dish soap. Many wondered if this would work in water, soy milk or act differently with different soaps.
Many were curious how soap 'pushed the food dye away ' so quickly when such small amounts were added directly to the dye.
