This FUN lab gives students an idea of how energy is measured and how calories in food are calculated. It is a great extension to food webs and energy flow in Ecology. The math is simple, the procedures are quick and easy, and students LOVE to see that Cheeto catch on fire!

This product comes in WORD format so it can be edited to meet your needs. It includes teacher instructions, lab procedures, a student handout, and an answer key.

*You'll need Cheetos, clay, paper clips, disposable aluminum evaporating dishes, match books, empty soda cans with tabs, ring stands, metal rings, glass stirring rods, graduated cylinders, thermometers, and water for each lab group.
