Diffusion: Food Dye in Water

A very simple way to illustrate diffusion. Place a clear container filled with water on a table in the front of the room. Add a drop of two of food dye to the water. Point out to the students how dark and concentrated the dye is initially. The dye will spread out until it has reached an equal concentration throughout the entire container.
