This is a science nonfiction text about candy canes. It is an independent read for upper elementary grades, but would make a great read aloud for the lower grades. It talks about how candy canes came to be and how they are manufactured. Reference to a YouTube showing candy cane production is included. There are suggestions for creating your own assembly line. It is paired with a candy cane science experiment. There is also a suggested STEM project that students can work on while waiting to see the results of the experiment! There is a graphic organizer for independent follow-up work after the reading, as well as a recording sheet for the experiment.

Analyze data obtained from testing different materials to determine which materials have the properties that are best suited for an intended purpose. Examples of properties could include, strength, flexibility, hardness, texture, and absorbency. Assessment of quantitative measurements is limited to length.
Plan and conduct an investigation to describe and classify different kinds of materials by their observable properties. Observations could include color, texture, hardness, and flexibility. Patterns could include the similar properties that different materials share.
Construct an argument with evidence that some changes caused by heating or cooling can be reversed and some cannot. Examples of reversible changes could include materials such as water and butter at different temperatures. Examples of irreversible changes could include cooking an egg, freezing a plant leaf, and heating paper.
