Product Description
In this simple science experiment, students observe what happens to a gingerbread cookie when it is submerged in water and helps student’s answer the question “Why doesn’t the Gingerbread want to get wet?”.

Day 1 – Have students draw a whole Gingerbread cookie in the water. Over the next 24 hours observe what happens (you should see bits floating off of the cookie).

Day 2 – Have students look at the cookie in the water (it should be broken apart in several pieces – you may need to assist by gently shaking the container). Students should draw and discuss what happened to the cookie.

Materials needs:
1 empty spice jar (we review the term cylinder as we conduct the experiment)
1 gingerbread cookie
Tape – to tape the lid of the spice jar closed
