This is a mini-lab designed to help students understand what a variable is and how changing variables affects an experiment. For the mini-lab, you will need some flavored jelly beans (the odder the flavors the better the experiment will work!) Students will hold their nose and bite half of the jelly bean, trying to guess the flavor of the bean. Then, students will eat the rest of the bean without holding their nose. This is a fun, simple and tasty way to do a quick science experiment!
