Science Learning Activity: "One Sweet Whirled" Part 1

This resource from the project uses the example of swirl-dipped guitars to illustrate "classification of matter, hydrophobic and hydrophilic compounds, and forces within liquids." Since it is not feasible for a class to have an actual instrument to work with, the students will use common items including paper plates, food coloring and shaving cream to replicate the process. Teacher and student handouts are included in the document. This is the first part of a two-part activity; the second part may be found here.
