This week in the Funny Experiments class we explored density by making a rainbow in a glass. We talked about how not all liquids weigh the same but actually have different weights. First we poured honey in a cup, then we added dish soap, water, and vegetable oil. All four liquids laid on top of each other and did not mix. The children were surprised that the liquids did not mix and wanted to see what would happen if they stirred the liquids. They loved watching the liquids mix together and then magically separate.
