I love my family and enjoy spending time with them! We tried to have kids for 8 years and finally were blessed to adopt to wonderful children from S. Korea so I'm passionate about adoption. Now that they are getting a little bit older I homeschool them and we have wonderful adventures learning, right now we are studying all about Egypt and we are even mummifying a chicken!
Drop food coloring onto the ice and find which color is iridescent
Makenzie found that a CD is iridescent
Kylan found that bubbles and sea shells were iridescent
First we started out with a bowl of ice then we added salt to it and then dropped food coloring drops onto the salt covered ice. We were looking for iridescent colors and we found that 2 of our food colors had an iridescence to them but we had the neon food colors so if you use the four regular colors you will find 1 has an iridescence. The kids loved this experiment and went around the house looking for items that were iridescent. They found that CD's and DVD's, water, some of our glass bowls, mom's pearl necklace, sea shells, bubbles and cellophane all are iridescent.
