We are crazy about Loralee’s fun experiments with candy and treats on her website www.candyexperiments.com! All the experiments in this booklets are inspired or adapted from her fabulous site and are used with permission. Please visit www.candyexperiments.com, you will not be disappointed!
This resource was exactly what I needed!! I created a data sheet for my students to record their findings like "real" scientists and have uploaded it here to share with anyone who might want to use it with your candy bar experiment.

As a first grade teacher I am told to focus heavily on math, reading, and writing. With the time requirements of how long I am to teach each of those, fitting in science can be difficult. These experiments will help me fit in science more often!
