Candy Cane Science Experiments

Miss Munns’ kindergarten class has been learning about the scientific method using candy canes as their testing group. The students make their hypothesis and then get to work conducting their experiments.

Most recently, the group was added candy canes to a bowl of baking soda and then poured vinegar on top to see what would happen.

Would the mixture fizz? Would it erupt? 

The students were excited to see the fizzy results from the experiment, and had a lot to say about the smell of the vinegar!

The class will be conducting more experiments on candy canes in the weeks ahead and will continue to learn about how to form a hypothesis and set up an experiment.
