We were given some skittles to arrange on a plate. We then carefully poured warm water onto the plate and watched what happened to the skittles.
We found it fascinating to watch the pattern and colours change and we noticed that the skittles began to shrink and turn white.
We discussed what was happening as a class and walked round and looked at each other's patterns. We enjoyed it so much that we are going to perform the experiment again next week but with 'giant' skittles and with cold water this time to see if we get different results.
Great experiment Year 2!
