Chemical Reactions in Your Mouth

In this chemistry activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners will see that chewing is more than just the crushing up of food; there is actually a chemical change going on at the same time. This activity was created as a pre-visit for a traveling science show, but makes a great stand-alone activity as well!
