A learner willing to learn more


Chocolate square (the size you wish to use on each S’more): 14.42 g

Marshmallow: 30.92 g

Graham cracker (the size you wish to use on each S’more): 17.14 g

(let G represent the graham crackers, M represent the marshmallows, C represent the chocolate and S represent the S’mores)

G2 + 6M + 1C => 1S

S’more: 64.60 g

Only one product or S’more formed.


Making the S’mores was such a wonderful way of learning. Although we only made one due to the amount of materials we had, the one little piece (after removing all the burnt edges) tasted delicious. Not only did we work hard on it because it was a school activity, but also we payed full attention since there was a scrumptious reward in the end.

Through this experience, i feel there was a relationship present between the S’more made and the raw materials (or reactants). Their masses seemed to have only increased by about 2 grams but considering the possible errors, perhaps the we can say this is a good an near accurate proof or example of the Law of Conservation of Mass and that the mass of the reactants is conserved.

The experiment’s product was delicious but we can only make one due to the lack of chocolates. Because we had only a little to use, we became limited. Thus, perhaps we can call the echolocate our limiting reactant in this experiment. Luckily, we still had extra marshmallows and graham crackers or our so-called excess reactants in this experiment. The total mass of each marshmallow is about 140 grams and the graham crackers, 105 grams.
