Gum and Chocolate

In this activity, learners practice observation and prediction skills as they experience an interesting chemical reaction in their mouths by chewing chocolate and gum at the same time.

DESCRIPTION

Gum and Chocolate is a fun (and gross!) activity in which participants can experience a chemical reaction in their mouths.

This activity involves real gum and real chocolate, which could conflict with your organization's policies around food, allergens, or chokeables, so you may want to use the activity only for facilitator training purposes, or at a closely monitored table at your event.
