    I googled this and came up w/ the following experiment: Give them the supplies: capsules, cups, timer, liquids- soda, water, liquid soap, lime juice, apple juice, milk (6 groups)
    In which liquid will the capsule be absorbed the fastest
    Introduce the four steps of the scientific method:
    1. Observe
    2. Hypothesis
    3. Predict
    4. Test

    Assign students lab partners. Give each group a liquid, capsule and timer. Students will make a hypothesis, predict- test and then chart their results

    THis was an abbreviated summary.

    Great idea.
