Hiya!!! I don't know about you but there are ALWAYS leftover packages of those awful sugar coated marshmallow animals after Easter! And now they have started making them for other Holidays! Does anyone actually eat them besides my mother? Or like me do you just buy them because they are cute and it's tradition? If you have leftover peeps and are tying to find a way to use them in your classroom that's fun and engaging then this post is for you! If you want an excuse to buy them and try one well then this post is for you! If you just need a easy science activity for the crazy week leading up to Easter then look no further! I've got ya covered!
When I taught 4th grade science all day I always tried to incorporate food or candy into lessons if possible. Why? Who isn't interested in food and or candy? Instant attention getter and behavior management tool! The kids always wanted to find out what new way I had found to make food and candy scientific and they ALWAYS hoped I had gotten them some for the end of the lesson!
So to introduce mixtures and solutions and dissolving in the Spring it only seemed fitting to try to dissolve a PEEP! After I left 4th grade Science I added to this set to make it less specific and adaptable for other grade levels. It now includes a page for floating and sinking.
The 5 senses
A younger grades friendly experiment page
And also the upper grades experiment
I hope you can use this product and have some before Easter fun with your kiddos!
