Respect - 'Tye Dye Milk'

  • I used this experiment to emphasize the point that we need to respect everyone because, "each one of us is unique, but when we get together, the picture is complete".

    whole milk
    liquid food colors
    Dawn dish washing liquid
    pie plate (or some container to hold the liquid)

    1. Pour the milk into the pie plate or container so that it completely covers the bottom.
    2. Put drops of food color into the milk.  Keep them close together without letting them touch. Using a drop or two of each of the different colors makes it a lot better.
    3. Put a drop of the Dawn in the middle of the container,  and watch the colors mix.
