ELL Science Experiments | Candle Magic
ELL students will love participating in a fun, hands-on activity while they learn about content area topics. Students will learn about chemical and physical changes in a visually supported way. They will follow simple steps to extinguish a lit candle using baking soda and vinegar. They will read a simplified text explaining important content area science topics and answer comprehension questions. Then, they will write a summary of the experiment and an explanation of the scientific concepts. They will practice speaking using high-frequency academic vocabulary.

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • an explanation of chemical versus physical changes
  • easy instructions to complete a science experiment
  • an accessible science text with comprehension questions
  • scaffolded support to encourage students’ scientific writing
  • a speaking activity with sentence stems
  • a speaking activity without sentence stems
  • a student-friendly speaking rubric

Your students will love this hands-on activity designed specifically to help them show growth in language proficiency.  They’ll be ready to write and speak with confidence about scientific topics in both the language classroom and regular education setting.
