Children experience the principles of solubility and pH daily as they make lemonade, stir a bouillon packet into hot water, or play at the beach,. We capitalized on our student’s natural curiosity about the world around them by exploring the concept of solubility. Have you ever wondered if indeed peeps can be demolished. As peeps are made mainly of marshmallows with a sugar coating on top, do you wonder if they will dissolve in liquids like common refined sugar? Could we make pink lemonade from peeps? To answer these student created questions, students will use experimentation and active investigation.
Come on Peeps, Let’s Experiment with pH & Solubility! This document is written as a laboratory investigation following the scientific method (process).
