I did this science experiment as a class project with my 3rd grade special education class. Each child received a copy of the science journal to fill in as we went along. I displayed the journal on the Smartboard. Some pages we did as a whole class, but some were for the students to fill in. The journal pages take you across the scientific process of prediction(hypothesis), materials, procedures, observation, results, and conclusion. Some of the pages are out of order. You may want to change the times of each observation. My students had pointed out that we should have observed the candy hearts over a shorter period of time.
The titles and charts are to be used for a science board. The titles can be colored in by each student, as seen in the preview.
