Edible Labs; Featuring 8th Graders

This week my lovely 8th graders made “Atom Cakes”.  They had a choice between displaying an isotope or an ion of their choice.  Edible labs are fun for the kids (not so fun for the Teacher’s waist) and great ways to reinforce diagrams! Below are some other edible labs my students have completed this year.

The Ice Cream Lab (8th Grade)to show endothermic vs exothermic reactions. 

Chocolate Chipping Away at the Rock Cycle (6th Grade)- Students use hot plates and chocolate chips to show the formation of sedimentary,metamorphic and igneous rock.

Making Pretzels (7th Grade): To investigate fermentation in yeast
