Students will use their knowledge of physical properties while using a dichotomous key to identify the flavors of jelly beans.
This is fabulous opportunity for students to engage in a hands-on activity incorporating their knowledge of physical properties with jelly beans! Depending on your school's policy and classroom allergies, you can let the students taste test the jelly beans after the investigation!
Please see my other activity, "What is a Dichotomous Key?" to help to create some knowledge of dichotomous keys prior to using this activity.
