Plop, plop, fizz, fizz. What a thrill this soda is! Pour clear
carbonated drink (such as Sprite or 7-up) into as many ice-cube tray
sections as you have children in your class. Ask each child to
choose a color of jelly bean, name its color, and drop it into a section.
Freeze the cubes. (The jelly beans' color will tint the liquid to
create colored cubes. Jelly Belly jelly beans will not work for this
activity.) During snack time, put a cube into a clear plastic cup
for each child. Have each child find a cube that corresponds to the
color of bean he selected; then assist him in filling his cup with the
same type of clear soda used to make the cubes. As they watch the
ice melt, they will be surprised to see the clear soda blush with color.
Using a spoon,
remove the colorless bean from each drink. Wow! Drinks that
taste like jelly beans!
