My name is Vanessa and I am a future elementary school teacher. I wanted to share a fun experiment that a classmate and I did in our Teaching Science course. We decided to teach about erosion by putting M&M's candy in water, and observing what would happen to the candy with water movement and without it. The students were able to observe that movement of water did work faster on the candy, demonstrating that such factor is key in erosion of rocks. Once we finished our experiment, our professor told us that we could try putting all the different colors of candy in a circle, and by wetting them with water we created a color wheel. That is where I came up with the idea of actually drawing by creating M&M's patterns and then pouring a little water on them. Once finished, a picture of it should be taken to capture the masterpiece. In this way, students could create neat art projects and also go over the science concept of erosion. Here you go, art & science for you!
Thanks for passing by,
