Scared of science? Don't be! Hands-on learning opportunities lurk behind every corner. Turn their Halloween obsession into a spook-tacular science discovery session. Bewitch your students with candy chemistry. Creep them out by turning leftover pumpkins into bacterial breeding grounds. Get slimed, and more! Then watch in wonder as their reluctance vanishes into thin air. You’ll all see how science is like magic—only better.
Test Halloween Candy for Glucose
Test Halloween candy for glucose (a type of simple sugar) and find out which one has the most. Although we used mainly lab supplies for this project, you could use household supplies and get similar results. Instead of test tubes, use glasses. Substitute a pot, burner, and heat safe glass for the water bath, and so on. See Project >>
