Christmas Science Experiment - This product contains one simple science experiment that can be done independently by third, fourth and fifth graders. This can be done with second graders as long as they are able to read the materials.

- 3 small, clear cups per student or group
- vegetable oil
- liquids labels I’ve provided
- observation/learning packet
Explanation of Results:
I’ve included a very child-friendly explanation of the results using the words molecules and atoms. If you would like a more detailed explanation, I can provide one.
Optional Word Search:
This is for students to complete while they wait for the experiment to finish or if some students finish before others.
