Overview:

The primary purpose of this experiment is to engage students in an activity that will allow them to observe that hotter conditions can speed up changes in materials. Students will predict whether food coloring disperses more quickly in hot, cold, or room temperature water, and then carry out a short activity to explore their predictions.

Grade: 5
2 ) Investigate matter to provide mathematical evidence, including graphs, to show that regardless of the type of reaction (e.g., new substance forming due to dissolving or mixing) or change (e.g., phase change) that occurs when heating, cooling, or mixing substances, the total weight of the matter is conserved.
