Product Description
How many pieces of candy are in that jar? Can your chemistry students figure it out without removing the candy?

This lab challenges your students to do just that using the concept of “counting by weighing.” This concept, commonly taught in chemistry and general science classes, is one students can easily apply in their own lives, adding a bit of realism and relevancy to course concepts.

This product includes:
• Teacher Instructions, including detailed instructions for lab prep, prelab seminar, and teaching tips, as well as several instructional variation and extension ideas (4 pages)
• Student lab sheet (2 pages)
• Sample data and answer key (2 pages)

This lesson can fit into one 40-minute class period depending on the lab skills of your students. If you choose to use any of the variation or extension ideas, you could use at least one more class period as well.

Your students will really enjoy this lab and have fun as they learn. Plus, you’ll look like a boss for having such a great lab idea. I know this lab will prove to be a valuable and fun experience for you and your students!
