Week Four – Colored Candy Cane Experiment
Fill three different clear containers with water. Room temperature is best. Now drop a candy cane in each container. It’s ok if your candy cane is broken, the results will be the same. Observe what is happening to the candy canes. It may take a little while to see changes. Which candy cane lost its color first? Did any of them keep their color? Smell each container. Do they smell the same or differently?
