Students with experimentStudents in Mrs. Kwiatkowski's 5th grade Science class at Martin Road Elementary School conducted an experiment exploring the differences between physical and chemical changes.

Students used Skittles and water to observe that although the color from the candy was dissolved and the physical appearance of the candy was altered, the chemical composition of the candy did not change. 

As the students worked through this experiment, they also discussed the concept of concentration gradient, which is the reason why the food coloring from the candy met in the middle of the plate and did not mix together.
