Year 4 plan and conduct their skittles investigations

For the last couple of weeks, Year 4 have been learning about dissolving and, after a very exciting lesson involving dissolving skittles, we thought of scientific questions that we would like to investigate further. Some of the questions that have been investigated are:

  • How long will it take for skittles to dissolve in ice-cold water compared to warm water?
  • Will the liquid used affect the rate of dissolving?
  • Will smarties dissolve like skittles do?

We planned which equipment we would need and predicted what we thought would happen. We thoroughly enjoyed conducting the investigations. It was great fun using the skittles and seeing the results!
