Gobstopper Science

I love the scientific method.  I love gobstoppers.  Put the two together, voila...you have the Gobstopper lab.  Check it out on my teachers pay teachers account!

A picture from today's investigation after 10 minutes of Gobstoppers sitting in water.

Usually I run my Gobstopper lab similar to that seen below....



Tomorrow, I am thinking of extending the lab and allowing the students to complete this lab as the control group (room temp water) and change the liquid (experimental group) to see the difference.  I am undecided whether to allow them to just use hot water or to allow them to use soda or other liquids...

I've done this before with the little gumballs for those little penny machines. The kids do love it. They love seeing the colors spread and mix together. Very cool blog. :) I come from a long history of teachers in the family too. It is such a rewarding job.
