This is one of my favorites. Kids love glow sticks, but do they know how they work? Students will follow the scientific method to answer the question:
Does the temperature affect the brightness of a glow stick?
This is a great way to introduce students to the scientific method. The investigation comes in 3 grade levels. Each level builds on the other. It also makes it possible to teach the lesson at the same time. I like teaching it at Halloween because most kids trick-or-treat with glow sticks. Because the chemicals are contained in the stick the only mess is some water and ice. It also shows that molecules speed increases with heat. A memorable scientific experience for students. Also great for the classroom party.
