Science: An early summer fireworks experiment. The boys and girls will help make “Fireworks in a Jar”. Using warm water, vegetable oil, and food coloring they will watch as the color sinks, expand and mix. This is due to the fact that food coloring dissolves in water but not in oil. Because oil is less dense than the water, the oil will float to the top of the jar. The food coloring droplets will begin to sink because they are heavier than the oil. Once they sink into the water, they will begin dissolving into the water which looks like a tiny explosion.We will also discuss safety rules: How can we be safe at home, in the classroom and outside?? Demonstrate ways to stay safe.
