We started with our Scientific Process page. Our question was, "What Happens When You Put an M&M in a glass of water?" Next we created our hypothesis. Most chickadees wrote "the color will come off," or "the M&M will melt." We listed the materials we needed and the steps we would take to complete our experiment.
Then we started observing the changes. First the color did come off and stayed at the bottom of the cup. But then the real magic happened....not only does all the color come off and stay at the bottom....the M floats to the top of the water!
