Pumpkin Spice Candy Corn Science Experiment
What we used:
pumpkin spice candy corn
To start we talked about what we would do to test the candy corn. We chose to fill 3 different sized containers with water at different temperatures(cold, warm, hot).
Then the kids and I decided we would add different amounts of candy corn to each container. We would see if the different amounts and temperatures had any affect on the experiment.
I asked the kids to make predictions on what would happen to the candy corn in the water. One said it would grow and one said it would dissolve.
|my oldest noted the water was bubbling|
We left the experiment sitting on the counter a few minutes and when I came back into the kitchen I noticed the candy skin was coming off or shedding. I got the kids to come back and check it out.
After a little observation we left the containers again on the counter.
We came back later and finished investigating the candy corn experiment. We saw the candy did dissolve leaving a coating behind. The candy changed the color of the water and the large container smelled just like pumpkin spice.
The kids also mixed them up and touched it with their fingers to investigate even more. There are so many ways you could test this one candy.
