Sugar is the perfect substance to examine the property of solubility since it easily dissolves in water. In the first hands-on activity that uses the scientific method, students compare the times it takes sugar, sugar cubes, and different masses of sugar to dissolve in water. In the other, the effects of temperature on solubility are examined. The activities use simple materials from the grocery or dollar store. The materials, procedure, and result tables are provided and can be placed into student’s science notebooks or can be a stand-alone assignment.
As a bonus, there is a description of a construction paper model of sugar dissolving in water as well as a result table for an extension activity.
