5.1 Students will use the scientific method in an experiment with M&Ms or Skittles in water and other liquids. They will make a hypothesis, identify the independent and dependent variables, and collect data to make a conclusion.
Light Circuits: Depending on the grade level of the students, you can have them build a very simple circuit or a very complex circuit with both series and parallel circuits combined. For my students I have them use file folders in order to design and build a series on one side, then a parallel on the other with certain parameters for the switches. The students have an amazing time and there is always 100% participation and together we saved those lights from a trip to the landfill!
Fun Science Experiment: Pour whole milk and add red bull - let sit 5 minutes and the acid in the red bull will cause the protein in the milk to separate - liquid changing to solid! New Science Experiment to try!
