Chewing gum; while flavor is key when purchasing a pack of gum, another important factor that weighs into decision-making is how long that flavor will last! Perfect for upper elementary students interested in physical science, we found a fun project shared by Virginia Lynne that explores which of the popular gum brands is the best buy based on which has the longest-lasting flavor!
You'll find lots of inspiration for setting up your own experiment - a step-by-step procedure, an example recording sheet for data collection, sample results, etc. Not to mention, there are several suggested project extensions that you might consider looking in to!
