    Chocolate Science Activity

    Clip to ScrapBook
    This is a science activity that was done at an AMSTI training workshop:
    You will need miniature Babe Ruth, Snicker, Milky Way, and Three Musketeer bars. You'll also need a clear tub of water. Have students work in small groups to make a prediction about what will happen to each candy bar when dropped in the water(unwrapped). Have them drop each candy bar in the water. They will notice that one of the candy bars will float and the others will sink to the bottom. They will record these observations in a notebook and come up with why they think this happened. Do candy bars with nuts weigh more than candy bars without? Does the sugar content affect the candy bar's weight? They may have to eat a few candy bars to determine their contents.
