Science has never been SWEETER as students actively engage this exciting Halloween STEM activity and lesson in inquiry, observation, model creation, and analysis of solubility. Use all that left over holiday candy to explore some amazing science!
I love finding the wonder of science concepts in every day activities that are exciting for students to explore. This activity is perfect for the spooky Halloween season, or ANY TIME OF YEAR that you just want to sweeten up your science instruction. Although it addresses the complex science of solubility, the goal is also for students to hone their observational skills as a scientist.
Use the companion activity that best fits your students needs. You’ll notice there are two versions of each activity to address different grade levels or to use for differentiation purposes. You will also see two sets of materials, one with “Halloween” clip art and the other has basic candy clip art that can be used at ANY TIME of the year.
