UPDATED 8/2017!! Students use a yummy, motivating treat to help support learning of the scientific method! Lab sheets included in your TPT purchase as .doc file, Skittles candy not included. I have found that purchasing the small halloween/individual bags can be easiest, or split a larger bag amongst a group of students.
Lab includes practice and emphasis with the following Scientific Method Steps: Purpose, Research, Question, Hypothesis, Experiment, Data Analysis, Conclusions. I have chosen to use the link below to help students graph data in lieu of graphing by hand as well.
Could easily be adapted in DOC file to use a different type of snack/candy if that works better for your class! I have found Skittles to be the best option in a small quantity due to allergies in previous years.
