Mad Science Thursday - Dancing Milk

Posted: September 28, 2017

Another successful science experiment completed!  Today we made dancing milk.  All you need for this experiment is pie plate, whole milk (must be whole milk), an assortment of food colouring, q-tip, and preferably Dawn dish liquid.  Fill the bottom of your pie plate with milk, add a few drops of food colouring, coat one end of your q-tip in the dish liquid, and then dip the q-tip into the center of your pie plate - what happens?

When we complete our experiments, we do our best to fill the role of a scientist by using the language and asking great questions and making observations.  The children are getting better at making hypothesis and describe what they see.  In this video clip I have captured the children's excitement.  After they made the milk dance, they very much enjoyed mixing the milk and making new colours.  Way to go little scientists!
