Product Description
Experiments with candy are a big hit in the STEM Lab! This is a great, simple study of what happens when you add liquids to hard-shelled candies. The challenge begins with an exploration using Gobstoppers candy. The experiment plan then follows the scientific method with lab sheets to complete as you work. Students will be using petri dishes, pipettes, and hand lenses. They will be brainstorming, asking questions, choosing an experiment, writing the steps of their plan, and then carrying out the experiment. Best of all, the main ingredient is candy!

This experience will take two to three class sessions to complete.

You will need materials along with this package, including: Gobstoppers candy; various other hard shell candies like M&M’s and Skittles; Petri dishes or shallow round bowls; Water; Pipettes (optional); Hand lenses (optional); Containers in various sizes and shapes; other liquids, like milk or vinegar; and Chart paper.

This package specifically includes: Cover, Teacher Background, Materials and Preparation page, 3 pages of Step-by-Step Procedures for Teachers, 2 page Student Lab Sheet (one page has two versions), Sample student answer sheets, 2 pages of photos, Sample Experiment Questions page, a scoring rubric, and a Terms of Use page. Also, all forms are provided in an editable forms file!

This is such a fun activity! Kids love it- just remember “We never taste in Science Class!”
