Another activity we did in our troop was called; "Water Layers". This activity is from the Brownie Try-It called; Water is Everywhere. When we did this activity our troop leader told us to take a sip to see if we would like to drink salt water. My troop leader found out that she made a mistake and instead of using salt she used sugar and the water didn't layer and the water tasted sweet. I think is was so great that my leader made this mistake because it showed me that kids are not the only ones who make mistakes. When I went home and did this activity I got the water to layer and when I tasted it, the water didn't taste good. How to do Water Layers;
You will need:
1. Put 1 cup of water in a glass. Slowly add salt. Keep stiring. Stop when the salt won't dissolve and stays at the bottom
2. Add some food coloring to the salty water
3. Hold the spoon to the top of the water and very slowly pour 1 cup of fresh water onto the spoon. The fresh water will stay on top, because it is not as heavy as salt.
Now do this experiment in reverse. Add salt to water fresh water. What happened? Next, try adding cold salty water to warm fresh water. What happened?
