This is written as a static display, but can easily be adapted to a hands-on experiment for learners to conduct.
In this activity, learners recrystallize substances from solutions and make observations about the resulting crystals. This test can help further identify the unknown.
Learners create hard water by mixing Epsom salt and water. Then they compare what happens when soap solution is mixed with hard water and regular water.
This laboratory exercise is designed to show learners how DNA can easily be extracted from lima bean bacteria. This experiment requires the use of a centrifuge (not included in cost of materials).
Learners use a simple process to extract DNA from strawberries.
This laboratory exercise is designed to show learners how DNA can be extracted from a chunk of thymus (sweetbread) or liver.
In this biology activity, learners use plastic pipettes to cut wells into the solid gel layer of agar in petri dishes and place solutions of simulated antigen and antibody preparations into the wells.
In this chemistry demonstration, learners observe a chemical reaction that produces a colorful effect.
This is a chemistry lab activity about solutions (page 6 of the PDF). Students make a limewater testing solution for carbon dioxide and explore the concepts of solubility and precipitates.
This is a chemistry lab activity about solutions (page 7 of the PDF). Learners see firsthand how chemicals in a solution can combine to form an entirely different substance.
In a class demonstration, learners observe a simple water cycle model to better understand its role in pollutant transport.
In this chemistry activity, learners explore whether matter is created or destroyed during a chemical reaction. They will compare the weight of various solutions before and after they are mixed.
This laboratory exercise is designed to show learners how DNA can easily be extracted from wheat germ using simple materials.
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 laboratory exercise is designed to show learners how DNA can easily be extracted from onion cells using simple materials.
In this activity (page 26 of the PDF), learners make observations, formulate hypotheses and design a controlled experiment, based on the reaction of carbon dioxide with calcium hydroxide.
This laboratory exercise is designed to show learners how DNA can easily be extracted from yeast using simple materials.
