PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

★ ★ Mentos and Soda Lab ★ ★

This activity guides students through investigating how the brand and type of soda and candy affect the outcome of this explosive lab.

About This Activity:
The mentos and soda lab is an old science favorite with many variations out there. After trial and error of this lab for years, this is what has worked for my students. My favorite part is the research videos, the actual experiment (they love it!), and the close sentence conclusion.

My lab guides the students through the scientific method, provides links for researching the concept, and provides a graphic organizer type format for students to fill in the components including Close sentences for the conclusion. The Purpose/Question of the lab is: "Does the brand/type of soda or candy change the experiment?"

You can differentiate this lab by doing a "challenge by choice" and offering students the option to write their conclusion without the sentence starters.

Materials Needed:
♦ Soda Bottles (Coca-Cola Zero, Diet Coke, Sprite Zero, Diet Coke, Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, etc....1 per student group)
♦ 6 Mentos candies/soda bottle (Mint and Fruit) per student group
♦ A measuring tape or yard stick
♦ Construction paper and tape
