Do you know how to make a gummy bear grow?

Earlier this week, we learned about osmosis.

First we measured our gummy bears. Then we put them in a bowl of water overnight. Before going to bed, we predicted if the gummy bears would shrink, stay the same, or grow larger.
Our gummy bears grew about 25% larger, in fact, one of them exploded! Using osmosis, we were able to grow our little gummy bears into larger gummy bears.
