This is a science lab on chemical and physical properties and changes using candles. Students will hypothesis about the changes, use their observation skills, make predictions about the changes, and record data on a chart, then graph the data in several ways. Students will then use that data to predict future changes.
Teachers should go over lab safety and lab expectations prior to conducting this lab.
This lab requires very little prep and materials.
Lab groups should range anywhere from 2-4 students so they can discuss and learn in a cooperative fashion.
