Skittles Science Experiment

This week we explored cause and effect through conducting an experiment using skittles. We followed the Scientific method to help us record our hypothesis, observations and reflect upon why the colours spread. We noticed that the food colouring and sugar coating on the skittles spread rapidly and dissolved from the heat.

  • Would the experiment have changed if we used cold water? Why?
    What other foods would have the same effect?
  • What would you do differently next time?
