Holiday Science Experiment
As with all of our experiments we began with observations and predictions. Because the boys a slightly different in ages (7 and 9) this looks a little different for each child. For this experiment, both boys chose to measure the candy canes before they started and they both drew the jars of liquid.
Legoman (9) wanted to test how long it would take the candy canes to dissolve in each liquid, but Bones (7) wanted to test which liquid dissolved the candy canes the fastest. While these tests are very similar, they have slightly different predictions and outcomes.
