Density Rainbows is a hands-on activity that allows participants to explore density. Using household liquids (e.g.honey, dish soap, oil, etc.), participants layer a container with liquids from most dense to least dense. For an added layer of fun, participants can drop different solid items into the rainbow to see where they stop (i.e. how their density compares).
