Low prep and easy to follow – this lab is sure to be a hit in your classroom! All you need is one M&M with a solid center per student. I use the pretzel ones in my classroom. If you have children allergic to chocolate or do not enjoy candy, peaches or apples can be used.

 

Appropriate for grades 6-11! I use this as the engagement or exploration activity in a 5E Model lesson. Students love it!
