What can we find out about milk?


Recording Sheet

Type of Milk What colour is it? How does it look? How does it pour? How does it taste?
Skim milk white, milky white liquid like regular milk pours very easily like water like regular milk but not as creamy because it has less fat
Flavoured milk chocolate colour like chocolate coloured milk pours quite easily like melted chocolate poured into whole milk
Evaporated milk cream colour like fresh cream but thin consistency easy to pour like unsweetened and runny fresh cream but with less fat
Condensed milk pale custard colour like custard but lighter colour pours slowly like golden syrup extremely sweet like golden syrup but nice and creamy


We chose four types of milk for testing i.e. skim milk, flavoured milk, evaporated milk and condensed milk. We poured about three quarters of each type of milk into separate cups. We looked carefully at the appearance of the milk samples. We noticed that they were of different colours, some poured out easily like water while others poured slowly like golden syrup.

We tasted the samples of milk. Some tasted creamy and some tasted sweet. After recording our observations we mixed all the samples together and enjoyed our own creation of a delicious new milky creamy shake.
