What Dissolves?

Project Learn and Grow
What Dissolves? 

All you need

  • Glass jars
  • Water 
  • Anything you want to see if it dissolves

For project learn and grow day we wanted to see what dissolves in water.  I just grabbed a bunch of items from our pantry and filled the glass jars halfway with water.  One by one we tested each item.  We used cinnamon sticks, sugar, rice, red hots, oatmeal, raisins, baking soda, and salt.  The kids thought everything would dissolve and loved stirring the items.

All you need

  • A glass jar
  • Honey, karo syrup, dish soap, water, vegetable, rubbing alcohol, lamp oil.  
  • Food Coloring
We measured out each liquid into 8 oz each.  Then we poured each liquid into the jar slowly and in the center so it didn't touch the sides.  We colored the liquids that had no color.  This is where we messed up.  Be careful about what colors are next to each other.  We had blue and purple right next to each other so the center part looks like one big dark color.  The kids could still see the liquids sitting on top of each other, but for the picture it didn't work so well.
The kids liked this one, but it was a little hard trying to get them to not pour the liquids since we needed it to be slow.  I want to try it again with different colors.
