This is a fun Halloween-themed activity that your students are bound to enjoy! This packet contains a recipe, four ingredient labels, and an observation form.
You will need the following items:
· Miniature cauldrons (available at Oriental Trading & Amazon.com — search for “Candy Kettle”)
· Vinegar (“Goblin Drool”)
· Glitter (“Fairy Dust” - any color)
· Baking soda (“Bone Dust”)
· Green food coloring (“Snake venom”)
· Measuring cups and spoons
· Tray (to catch the mess)
Print out the labels and glue/tape them onto the corresponding ingredient (trim label as needed). Print a copy of the recipe for each student.
Have students follow the instructions on the Witches’ Brew recipe to create their own magical potion and watch the reaction!
This would make a neat science lesson or life skills lesson (to practice skills such as following a recipe's instructions and measuring). I used it with my students in speech therapy to talk about smells, make predictions, vocabulary (“ingredients”, “measure”, etc.), and work on describing.
