Classroom Resources: Chemistry Basics
126 – 133 of 133 Classroom Resources
Observations, Density, Mixtures, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Physical Change, Acid Base Reactions, Mixtures | Elementary School
In this lab, students create a mixture of oil, water and food coloring, and then add an Alka-Seltzer tablet, to create a homemade lava lamp. Student will record their observations during each step of the process and answer follow-up questions about the chemical and physical changes that took place.
Physical Properties, Introduction, Matter, Chemical Properties | Elementary School
In this activity, students will focus on the properties of matter and distinguish matter by their physical properties
Observations, Physical Properties, Matter | Elementary School
In this lab, students will investigate observable properties of matter. Students will use their knowledge of physical properties to create and separate mixtures of assorted buttons based on the characteristics of color, shape and number of holes.
Physical Properties, Introduction, Interdisciplinary | Elementary School
In this activity, students will investigate the physical properties of magnetism.
Observations, Density, Physical Properties, Introduction, Mixtures | Elementary School
In this two-part lesson, students will learn about density through a teacher-led demonstration and a hands-on activity. The demonstration will give students the opportunity to observe the formation of a density tower made from common drinks. Students will then create their own density tower using simple ingredients, and then further investigate differences in density when solid objects are added to the tower.
Separating Mixtures, Separating Mixtures | Elementary School
In this lab, students will discover that black ink is a mixture composed of a several different pigments through a chromatography investigation.
Observations, Density, Physical Properties, Introduction | Elementary School
In this activity, students investigate whether certain materials will sink or float in water. Students will also explore how the shape of an object can affect its volume and density.
Observations, Density, Physical Properties, Mixtures, Mixtures | Elementary School
Students will be using three ingredients to create a liquid color-works mixture in a jar. This is a fun chemistry project to do with young elementary students around the 4th of July or New Year’s Eve to get the children excited about fireworks.
