Candy Experiment

This afternoon Holly did a small candy experiment (great way to enjoy the Halloween treats). We chose four candies and placed them into a dish containing cold water. Before she placed each candy she made a prediction as to what would happen. At first she predicted whether it would float or sink and then a longer prediction of what the water would do to the candy.
She pretty much guessed that the water would soak off the outer layer of color. But she tried predicting what was under that color layer. What smells she might encounter? If the candy would stay intact. Some guesses were correct and some were a surprise. For instance, the Skittles were colored through and the 'M' off of the M&M soaked off in tact and was floating on the top of the water. It was very cool!
