Fall Candy Corn Science

Fall Candy Corn Science
Friends~Tis the season for one of my favorite treats...CANDY CORN!  I love this fall goodie!  We had last weekend off so we had some time to have some fun with science and this sweet treat.  We dissolved candy corn in 3 different liquids.  Tap water, cold water, and hot water.

It was so cool to see how fast the candy corn dissolved in the hot water.  Ian loved it!  
We also experimented with baking soda and vinegar.

Check him out below testing out the fizzy candy corn.  
I think he just likes experiments that explode!
I am totally going to bring these experiments into my classroom.  I put together tons of fun interactive learning centers for my 2nd graders.  
I can't wait to teach this little poem I wrote to my class. 
(Click the poem to download a couple candy corn freebies.)

We are also going to make these cute candy corn guys using a glyph.
