Gummy Worm Science Experiment

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Today we decided to see what would happen if we placed gummy worms in cups of water. Students had to make observations of what the gummy worms looked like right after we put it in the water and predictions of what it would look like later. Each table had their own cup, along with one for the whole class but we decided the results would be pretty similar.

The students did a great job of using their knowledge from previous science experiments to make predictions.

Here is a picture after the gummy worms had been in the water for almost two hours. As we were leaving many students noticed how big the gummy worms have already gotten.
