Cookie CheMYSTERY chemical analysis lab! Great for middle school or high school physical science.
The local bakery needs your help! They lost the secret recipe for Grandma’s Amazing Sugar Cookies, and are down to their last bag of mix. Use careful observation to determine the ingredients included in the mix.
Students test six known substances with an array of simple tests, and use those observations to determine the mixture of substances in the unknown.
Practice data collection and recording, analysis, critical thinking, and communication with this lab activity that can be used near a holiday or any time. Learn food chemistry and about the types of chemicals that are found in the grocery store.
Full version includes introduction, objective, materials list, safety notes, complete procedure, blank data tables, analysis space, and teacher notes (science background, preparation notes, follow-up ideas, answer key, and more).
All materials can be obtained inexpensively at a grocery store or pharmacy!
