The law of conservation of mass can be a dry topic to teach and learn, but it doesn’t have to be. This conservation of mass lab
is a great way to explore conservation of mass and limiting reagents while letting the kids make a contained mess.
This is an introduction to this topic.
This lab uses household chemicals
that are safe to use and kinder to the environment.
The only special equipment is a scale and graduated cylinder.
The teacher’s guide includes
• Answer key for the warm up activity
• Demonstration ideas (including a challenge question for students)
• Teaching tips (analogies to help students connect with the material)
This lab is sure to be the class they are talking to their other teacher’s about the rest of the day.
