Big Idea:Students watch three exciting demonstrations that allow them to come up with signs of a chemical reaction on their own! The demonstrations include Elephant's Toothpaste, The Iodine Clock, and Rocket Engine. Your students will be in awe of these reactions!
Big Idea:Students utilize text strategies to investigate the differences between a chemical and physical change and play a fun group activity that gives students lots of practice at identifying reactions as chemical or physical!
Big Idea:Students go through 12 quick, fun lab stations that provide students with practice at citing evidence and determining if reactions are chemical or physical changes. Students burn salts, create precipitates, and blow bubbles in this fun lab series!
Big Idea:Students go through a series of lab stations to analyze the properties of reactants and products in chemical reactions as they make mustard come alive, make a skewer "spontaneously combust", and create copper out of solution!
Big Idea:Students create a rainbow of bubbles in a test tube, write a mystery message, and more during labs on chemical changes! Students also try to find an explanation when the teacher models a new medical innovation by revealing a "bloody" hand print!

Big Idea:The lab stations that focus on chemical reactions and conservation include using a battery to light steel wool on fire, forming a green precipitate by mixing two clear solutions, "magically" lighting the end of a skewer on fire, and more!
Big Idea:Students design a warm pack that can keep a bearded dragon warm during transport during the cold Michigan winters. Students choose a chemical, a concentration, and a cover for their warm pack that will maintain the optimal temperature of the lizard!
