Lesson Plan: Seeing Solutions

In this lesson, students will make their own solutions using water, food coloring, salt, and sugar. Students will observe how the solutions are made and predict what might happen when they mix those solutions. Students will add various quantities to a communal bin and observe what they see. The teacher will challenge the students to think about how they might return the solution back to its original form and students will test their hypotheses.  The class will then discuss various social and emotional scenarios that reflect the observations of the experiment.
