More skittles experiments in Room 3

Poppy and Shirley showed us an experiment with skittles and warm water. They separated skittles by their colours. They put two of one colour, three of another and so on into separated containers and soaked them in warm water for a few minutes. Then using a pipette, they gathered up the residue, colour by colour. They began with the colour that they used the most of. Then, they place the colour they used the second most of in and so on. This created a Skittles Rainbow in a jar because the bottom coloured skittle, which had the most skittles, contained the most sugar. So, it was denser and didn’t rise or blend with the less dense skittles above.
