In this activity, learners experiment with different variables in making hollandaise sauce to achieve the correct texture and consistency.
In this activity, learners investigate diffusion by creating underwater "fireworks" using food coloring, oil and water.
In this activity, learners can create five-layer density columns by employing one of three (or all) methods.
Learners observe working lava lamps to understand how they work (included in PDF link).
In this activity, learners experiment with the density of ice, water, and oil. Learners will discover that the density of a liquid determines whether it will float above or sink below another liquid.
In this activity, learners add food coloring to hot and cold water to see whether heating or cooling affects the speed of water molecules.
In this activity on page 4 of the PDF (Water in Our World), learners conduct some quick and easy tests to determine the differences between water and other liquids that look very similar to water.
It's difficult to see convection currents in any liquid that's undergoing a temperature change, but in this Exploratorium Science Snack, you can see the currents with the help of food coloring.
Learners create three solutions with different levels of salinity. They compare the density of these solutions by coloring them and layering them in a clear plastic cup and in a soda bottle.
In this activity, learners use oil, water, food coloring and antacid tablets to create a bubbling lava lamp. Use this activity to introduce concepts related to density, hydrophobicity vs.
In this activity, learners explore how hot and cold water move. Learners observe that temperature and density affect how liquids rise and fall.
Learners pour equal amounts of coffee, mineral oil, corn syrup, and alcohol into a beaker. The liquids resolve into stacked layers, and learners can infer which liquids are the most and least dense.
In this chemistry activity, learners explore density by using four solids and 6 liquids to create colorful, layered rows.
In this quick activity about the properties of water (page 1 of PDF under SciGirls Activity: Malformed Frogs), learners will use an eyedropper to slowly place one drop of water at a time onto a penny,
In this chemistry demonstration, learners investigate the rule "likes dissolve likes" by combining three, immiscible liquids to create a colorful density column.
In this activity, learners will explore how a hydrometer works by building a working model and conducting experiments.
