This activity allows students to practice their scientific inquiry skills while still having fun for Valentine's Day! The Out of this World Conversation Heart Science Lab provides a scenario where an astronaut has dropped some conversation hearts on the moon and a friendly, yet curious, alien wants to investigate these candy hearts. The astronaut invites the alien back to the space station to further experiment.

This lab encourages students to construct a scientific question, create a hypothesis, determine an operational definition, outline independent, dependent, and controlled variables, conduct an experiment about how the different temperatures of liquid affects how fast a candy heart can dissolve, make observations, collect data, graph data, and analyze results to draw conclusions. Each step of the procedures are illustrated to help students follow along.

Included in this Package:
-Corresponding SMART Notebook file with illustrated step-by-step instructions, erase to reveal slides, and teacher instruction slide (24 slides).
