Watching mixtures change.

Today the children were using a crumbly mixture of corn flour and hair gel to fill cooking bowls as they pretended to cook a meal. The children then decided to add food colouring to the crumbly mixture. They did this very gradually using pipettes and carefully watched the mixture change. Some discovered the texture and colour changed as they mixed the ingredients together with a spoon whilst others watched the more gradual change to the two colurs as they trickled into one another.
