Your students will love learning about chemical and physical changes with my chemical and physical change lab. This lab has students working in teams of four to complete 10 mini-experiments. Each mini-experiment will be either a physical or a chemical change. This lab is in the CER format which requires students to go beyond the "just because" answer. Students will need to provide evidence to back up their claim. At the end of the activity, students will write a reasoning paragraph where they connect the evidence from the lab (and a short video clip) to their claim.
I have also included the editable document so that you can adapt the lab to fit the needs of your students.
This lab does require enough equipment for 8 lab stations. Please click the preview to see the material list. If you do not have all materials, you could easily edit the activity to fit your needs. Also, if you are worried about your students using matches, you could make that section a teacher demonstration instead.
