PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Halloween Science: Candy Labs

I am so excited to bring you Halloween Candy Labs, a product perfect for Halloween science. These labs reinforce upper elementary physical science concepts.

Labs Included:
Candy Corn Properties: Students determine the physical state, mass, relative density, volume, and solubility of a piece of candy corn. (You can also choose physical properties and type them on the editable page.)

Chocolate-y Conductivity: Students determine which candy wrapper best prevents chocolate from melting.

Soluble Sweets: Students determine the solubility of four types of candy.

Candy Refraction: Students observe how water in a beaker changes the appearance of the lollipop through the glass.

Tips for Use:
As the teacher, you can use these labs in stations or as whole group activities. While the mini-labs are designed as stations, they can easily be used as a class if additional teacher scaffolding is necessary.

All written materials you need are included in this file. Just print the station pages, copy the student pages and add the science materials!

A PDF and a PowerPoint file are included. The text for the directions and student pages in this file are EDITABLE in PowerPoint. See page 3 of the preview to see what is editable. Not all parts of the file are editable.
