Candy Week!

For better or for worse, Halloween is synonymous with candy.

From past experience, I can say that your students' parents will be more than happy to have their kids sacrifice some of their trick-or-treating loot in the name of science and education!  And, November 1 is a good time to find candy on sale, if you're in need of more.

So, this week I'm going to share some experiments, activities, and demonstrations that use candy in one way or another to help your students learn and understand scientific principles. 

The mind reels that I could possibly have more candy-based learning to share; but, I do!  What can I say, there's nothing quite like candy to get and hold you students' attention! 

Before I bring on the new stuff, here's a round-up of science activities starring candy previously featured on the Science Matters blog:
