Subject: making lemonade

We mixed lemonade powder and water in different ratios and compared them. I recommend starting out by mixing up 3 or 4 mystery ratios, and letting them try to decide which drink goes with which ratio. I also tried doing 3-way proportions, using reconstituted lemon juice, sugar and water, but the kids hated the taste of the lemonade you made that way, even a "good" ratio, so we won't do that again.
