Colour a flower



During our last classes the 4th graders decided to color white flowers. For our experiment, we needed a few white flowers, several packages of food dyes and some jars with water. We didn’t have to wait long for the final effect. White flower petals started changing color after just a few hours. We like  exploring the world through experiments.
