Dissolving Skittles!

As we have been looking at different foods all throughout our topic we decided to conduct a science experiment to see what would happen to skittles when we added water to them. We made a prediction about what we thought might happen. When we did the experiment, we saw that the skittles turned white and all of the colour from them ran into the water. When we discussed this, we found that it is because the shells of the skittles are made from sugar and sugar dissolves in warm water.
