You need:

  • Chocolate (or, if you don’t have chocolate on hand, this activity can be done with water - it just won’t be as yummy).
  • Plastic Bags
  • A freezer or cold source

See what happens when you change the temperature of the chocolate!

  1. Predict what will happen when you warm chocolate in your hands or place it in the freezer.
  2. Conduct the experiment and interpret your results.
