In this chemistry activity, learners use thin layer chromatography to determine the molecular composition of different markers.
In this activity, learners discover the primary physical properties used to separate pure substances from mixtures.
Visitors test solutions of water, sugar, salt, and hydrochloric acid and the solids salt and sugar. They clip leads from the hand generator to wires immersed in each substance.
In this activity related to the human circulatory system (on page 10 of the PDF), learners observe the dispersion of a drop of food coloring in water, draw conclusions about the movement of dissolved
In this activity, learners investigate diffusion by creating underwater "fireworks" using food coloring, oil and water.
In this playful, goopy activity, learners mix two liquids to create a solid (that sometimes acts like a liquid ), using basic household materials such as borax and glue.
This activity uses LEGO® bricks to represent atoms bonding into molecules and crystals. The lesson plan is for a 2.5 hour workshop (or four 45-minute classes).
This activity was designed for blind learners, but all types of learners can use it to investigate heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures and solutions, identify the differences, and explore the conce
In "Chemistry is Colorful" learners explore different materials through paper chromatography.
In this chemistry investigation, learners combine common cooking substances (flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, pepper, oil, water, food coloring) to explore mixtures.
In this activity, learners will create glitter bottles with adult supervision. These are a fun way for little ones to practice observing and making comparisons.
In this activity, learners mix water, cooking oil, and liquid food coloring to create beautiful colored designs in a cup. Use this activity to explore liquid density and solubility.
In this a hands-on activity, learners explore how to put ice cream in an oven without it melting. Ideas in this activity include insulation and cooking.
In this activity, learners explore materials through paper chromatography.
In this activity, learners add dilute bleach solution to water that has been dyed with yellow, blue, and green food color.
In this sensory activity, young learners explore chemical reactions by making their own play dough from home.
In this activity, learners mix ingredients in a plastic bag, and then identify three characteristics of a chemical reaction: production of heat, color change, and production of a gas.
This activity was designed for blind learners, but all types of learners can explore means of physically separating a mixture using dissolving, filtration, and evaporation.
In this activity, learners identify different classes of matter based on physical properties.
