I started thinking about science for next year. I used my Introductions to Science Stations last year to start off the year, but I wanted to add a little something to that. At the beginning of the year, I want a simple, fun experiment to walk my students through the scientific method and discuss important terms and processes along the way. This is where Skittles come in!
For the great Skittles experiment, I was trying to answer the question: Do Skittles dissolve faster in warm or cool water? I measured out some water, heated up water for one cup, and got out my Skittles. Then, I ate a Skittle, but it's okay. :)
The Skittles experiment, along with suggestions, and printables is available in my iLearn Science pack. There is a PowerPoint, 8 stations, 2 activities, the Skittles experiment, and a lot of guidance on how to get a great start in science those first few weeks of school.
