Lava lamps

What happens when you add water, oil, food colouring and finally a 1/4 of an alka seltza? You create a Lava lamp!

The preps carefully followed science procedures to explore water and oil (they don’t mix), food colouring (it prefers to be in water) and chemical reactions (the alka selza created bubbles). They were entranced as the coloured bubbles moved up from the water, through the oil to the top and then fell back down into the water.
