BURNING CANDLE LAB Using Claim, Evidence, and Reasoning
To understand the Chemical and Physical Properties Of a Burning Candle.
This activity differentiates the difference between a chemical and physical change.
Activity page one: Students guess which pictures are chemical or physical changes and then read a short explanation of each.
Activity Two: Students design an experiment to observe the chemical and physical properties of a burning candle.
Activity Three: Students use Claim, Evidence, and Reasoning to explain the outcomes of their experiment.
Next Generation Science Standard:
MS-PS1-2: PS1.A: Structure and Properties of Matter Each pure substance has characteristic physical and chemical properties (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.
PS1.B: Chemical Reactions Substances react chemically in characteristic ways. In a chemical process, the atoms that make up the original substances are regrouped into different molecules, and these new substances have different properties from those of the reactants.
MS-PS1-6. Undertake a design project to construct, test, and modify a device that either releases or absorbs thermal energy by chemical processes.
