Mysterious M&M Lab Skills

Students sketched what they observed
when one M&M was placed in a bowl of 25 mL of water.

Students worked on developing detailed
written descriptions of what they observed. 
My seventh graders worked hard this week developing scientific inquiry skills by observing M&Ms in water.  The students were asked to learn how to sketch what they observe as well as provide a detailed written description.  Students then started developing their own experiments using different variables, such as: different color M&Ms, type of liquid, the temperature of liquid, and the number of M&Ms.  Students will then conduct their experiment on Monday to measure the rate of dissolution with the M&Ms under the condition they selected.
