The primary purpose of this Science NetLinks lesson is to engage students in an activity that allows them to observe that hotter conditions can speed up changes in materials. Students predict whether food coloring disperses more quickly in hot, cold, or room temperature water, then carry out a short activity to explore their predictions.
