Ward's® Essentials Crawling Color Walking Water

Explore Primary and Secondary Colors and Properties of Light.

  • Durable acrylic display case for demonstration
  • Student-directed inquiry and experiments
  • Aligned with NGSS MS-PS4, MS-LS1
This high-quality acrylic display allows the classroom to explore color mixing and the properties of water, including cohesion, adhesion, and capillary action. The seven cylinders in the setup are filled with water; food coloring in primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) is added to the first, third, fifth, and seventh cylinders, while the other cylinders remain filled with clear, colorless water. When absorbent materials are applied among the cylinders, the colors “crawl” across the display producing secondary colors in the once colorless water. Students take their knowledge a step further by engineering a plant model and mapping capillary action through the “xylem.” This kit also includes materials and mixing worksheets for students to perform their own hands-on, open inquiry experiments to produce secondary and tertiary colors. This kit includes enough materials for 15 student groups.

Ordering information: Kit includes acrylic setup, food coloring, mixing sheets, disposable pipets, and teacher’s guide.
