PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lab is a fun, tasty way for students to apply information learned about physical and chemical properties and changes. Vocabulary and concepts covered in this activity include: malleability, ductility, dissolve, solution, flammability, and reactivity.

For this activity, I give each student a handful of cotton candy (purchased from local Dollar Store or Wal-Mart). Students first make observations about the substance. Then, I give them a small cup of water for them to test its ability to dissolve. Finally, I do a demonstration for the students to test the cotton candy’s ability to burn or melt, as well as its ability to react to yeast. Students record their observations at each test and then they discuss which properties were physical and chemical.

Students can work on this lab as a group or independently. The following website will help you and your students better understand this lesson as well as see the results of each test.
