Squish. Melt. Disintegrate. Microwave. Laugh. Learn.
It had been years since we last did “candy science” after Halloween… we were due for some candy science fun! Not to mention, we have WAY too much candy in this house!
This year, the girls were old enough to look up experiments themselves. Also, I had them do a little writing to turn into our ES for school. And to make them think. Our years at Classical Conversations drilled into us the scientific method, and so long ago I made up a generic science sheet with the scientific method on it. It’s simple and fun and helps them to organize their thoughts and think a little deeper.
And, of course, Sierra wants me to tell you that it was just plain FUN!
