PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lab is designed to practice graphing skills and following directions independently. Students are able to interact with one of their favorite candies, Skittles!

Ideally, this is the first lab of the school year, because it is fun, engaging, and students love candy. It also reinforces the idea that we do not eat our lab materials (although, the teacher can reward students’ hard work at the end of the lab by allowing students to eat their Skittles).

The main focus of this lab is data collection and graphing. Students have the opportunity to practice filling in data tables, analyzing data by finding averages, and graphing data. Additionally, students practice finding length and mass of one Skittle.

For younger students, the teacher can scaffold the lab process by doing the lab with students. For older students, the teacher can provide less scaffolding, such as only going through the directions, or just handing the lab out to students and allowing them to work at their own pace.

For a more advanced version of this lab, see the M&Ms Lab in my TPT store.
