Science Ideas with Conversation Hearts

Last week I shared 4 science ideas for candy conversation hearts.

Candy Science Experiment We designed an experiment for testing how fast candy hearts dissolve in different temperatures of water. I included a printable data sheet just for you. You could also change the experiment and test different solvents {types of liquids} or use a different number of candy hearts. Would the candy hearts dissolve faster in vinegar? Would using 2 candy hearts change the amount of time they took to dissolve?

Candy Heart Ingredients Experiment In this experiment, we tested which ingredient(s) reacted with the baking soda.
