Little Innovator Spotlight

 

Meet Elijah

 

Elijah is an innovator.  He is in third grade and has always enjoyed science.  He worked with his family to create this super cool video exploring what happens when you mix colors using milk, Dawn, and food coloring.  

 

1.  Read a book about color. (Elijah's family read Mouse Paint but there are loads of great books about color. Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes is another favorite.) 

2.  Pour milk in a pan.

3.  Add food coloring. (Any design will do.) 

4.  Put Dawn on a q-tip. 

5.  Dip the q-tip in the milk. 

6.  Observe (What did you notice?!) 

7.  Question (What do you wonder now?!) 

 

Elijah wondered what would happen if he used cream rather than milk.  What do you wonder?!
