Learners explore water's property of cohesion through two investigations.
In this easy chemistry activity, learners submerge pennies in different liquids (water, lemon juice, vinegar, liquid hand soap, salt water, and baking soda mixed with water) to observe which best clea
In this electrochemistry activity, learners will explore two examples of electroplating.
In this chemistry activity, learners explore the amount of copper in a new penny. Learners use toilet bowl cleaner to hollow out the interior of a penny with zinc inside.
In this art-related activity, learners make a coin rubbing—a process similar to what archeologists may do with ancient artifacts. This activity can be used in connection with a history or art lesson.
In this activity on page 6 of the PDF (Chemistry—It’s Elemental), learners explore some of the properties of copper using a few common household ingredients.
Learners will collect pennies to donate and will combine charitable giving with estimating and calculating with money. To start choose a charity or something to save up for together.
In this activity, learners explore chemical engineering and how the processes of chemical plating and electroplating have impacted many industries.
In this activity, learners use heat to separate zinc and copper in a penny. This experiment demonstrates physical properties and how physical change (phase change) can be used to separate matter.
In this activity, learners create their own experiment and test which of 4 mixtures of household chemicals turn pennies green over 5 days.
