CANDLE OBSERVATIONS

SCIENCE - I OBSERVE, I THINK, I WONDER...

This week room 3 students have been observing candles and wondering how and why  a candle burns.
We observed carefully the flame, different parts of the flame and recorded our observations, our thinking and also some wonderings.

For a candle to burn, a heat source (commonly a naked flame) is used to light the candle's wick, which melts and vaporizes a small amount of fuel (the wax). Once vaporized, the fuel combines with oxygen in the atmosphere to ignite and form a constant flame.
