Reflection: Joy Factors that Affect Solution Formation - Section 4: Elaborate


High school students always get excited when you bring in treats to class.  Whenever I give students food I make sure to let them know that if they do not want to eat the food that it is fine and that they can just record the data from one of their partners.

I like this activity because students are able to have some chocolate while at the same time learning about factors that affect solubility. Additionally, if students forget the factors that affect the solubility of a solid or liquid I tell them to remember back to the M&M activity and think about what we did to get the M&M to dissolve.

Factors that Affect Solution Formation

Unit 7: Unit 8: Water Quality
Lesson 3 of 11

Objective: Students will be able to describe the factors that effect solution formation through taking notes and performing an activity.

Big Idea: Temperature, stirring, surface area, and pressure affect the solubility of a solute in a solvent when forming a solution.
