Our art for STEM week involved dissolving skittles to make patterns. We had a good discussion about what we thought was happening and why. We discovered that the Skittles were made out of sugar and dissolved in the water. Ask year 5 if dissolving is a reversible or irreversible change!
We left them over night to see how much further they would dissolve and came in today to some lovely plates of gloopy goo. We thought they looked too disgusting to share!
