Magic Colored Milk

In this chemistry activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will use milk and a few other basic ingredients to create a chemical change to make a color wheel. Although this is a previsit activity for a workshop about cooking with chemistry, it also makes an excellent stand alone activity!
