Rainbow In A Cup
Create a magical layering liquid!
Kids will create an array of colourful liquids that, with some careful maneuvering and a little patience, can be layered together to create a rainbow in a cup! They will explore topics in both science and math as we investigate measurement, properties of liquids, density, solutions & saturation.

They call me "Katie Educatie." Two of my favourite ways to spend my time are learning with kids and baking up sweet treats in the kitchen. If I were a dessert I would be a funfetti cupcake with ribbons of pink buttercream reaching for the sky! I have been an elementary school educator for a few years now and an avid baker all my life. Baking is an interesting hobby because you can view your creation as a work of art, a math equation and a science experiment that is (hopefully!) good enough to eat! If I were not a teacher, I would definitely have my own retro-themed bakery. I also love making music! I play piano, a little ukulele and am hoping to take up the kalimba one of these days. I enjoy creative writing and crafting with paint, thread, or string. My teaching background is in both Mathematics and English. I believe you can achieve anything you think you can. Some people say the sky is the limit. I say, if you give it your all, the limit does not exist.
