Description

Challenge your students to show you what they have learned about chemistry with these open-ended problem-solving challenges for properties of chemical and physical reactions that you can do safely in your classroom as independent tasks or science stations.

This hands-on product includes:

  • instructions for setting up your classroom for the challenges.
  • a shopping list of possible materials.
  • teacher instructions for each challenge with hints for making modifications for your students.
  • student instructions for each challenge.
  • student planning pages (for individuals and groups).
  • student self-assessment pages (for individuals and groups).
  • a marking guide (rubric).
  • hints and examples for the challenges.

The "answers" to the challenges are not included as these tasks are meant to focus on the process, not the "answer." We have included suggestions and hints about what you might expect.

These tasks require students to have access to several household products to use for experimenting. They are everyday items you might find in your kitchen or cleaning cupboard. See the preview for the complete list.

The challenges include:

  • The Lava Cup
  • The Great Race
  • Where Are My Bubbles At?
  • Can You Make a Solid?
  • Is There Air in There?
  • Can You Make It Float?
  • Acid or Base?
  • Salt or Sand?
  • Which Soap is Best?
  • Separate the Mixture?
  • What Amount?
  • Invisible Message.

This product has been classroom-tested with several groups of fifth grade students. It kept them VERY busy and challenged them.
