The "Chemistry Quint-a-sense" series is a fun way to involve all five senses in the learning process.
Students are given an audio-visual treat that is followed by a second treat that can be touched, tasted, and smelled!
WHAT WILL I GET WITH THIS PRODUCT?
This download is week 33 in the Chemistry Quint-a-sense series.
It features the salt of citric acid, sodium citrate. While this mini-lesson is designed to correlate best with the first week in May, around the time when spring sport competition is in full swing, it can be implemented at any time.
You will get a sharable mini-lesson, which can be presented over the course of 5-15 minutes, and remembered for years, depending upon your audience. The download comes with three sharing formats: Smart notebook, PowerPoint, and PDF.
Note: You will need to obtain the sharable treat separately! ;)
An fun demo can be included by titrating the sports drink and plain water side by side to observe the buffering effect.
IDEAS FOR USE:
Although the mini-lessons in this series occasionally tie in with the calendar and build progressively upon each other, each mini-lesson is also self standing and can be used completely independently.
Suggested ideas for use:
1) In the original "once per week" chronological order.
2) As a fun "change of pace", whenever needed.
3) As a "hook" for the start of a chapter, Unit, or lesson.
4) As a "reward" for participation, attendance, or test average
5) In a "continuous series" to start each day or lesson in a particular unit of study or month.
