Absorbing Colors

edited by: William C. Ritz and William Straits

This activity is for finding out what happens when various foods are placed in colored water. Have a variety of vegetables available and let each child select one to put in water to see what happens. After a few hours or longer of soaking, let the children remove and observe each food. Have fresh examples available for them to compare. As a fun follow up, change the activity by letting children add food coloring. A materials list, internet resources, standards, and safety practices are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, About the Editors, Introduction, Simple Graphing for Young Children, Science Teaching Boards and Boxes, Basic Materials List, and Index.
