In this introductory inquiry activity, students will see that when an M&M is placed in water, the sugar and color coating dissolves and spreads out in a circular pattern around the M&M. When students compare their results, they will see that every color of M&M dissolves in a similar way. The way the sugar and color dissolve in water is a property of M&M’s. This activity gives students a place to start making observations, asking questions, identifying and controlling variables, and designing a valid experiment.
Then there are 2 other experiments to do with the M&M's- How does water temperature affect dissolving rate and How does the amount of sugar in a solution affect dissolving rate of M&M's.
