Need a quick, safe, fun lab for IMFs? This will get kids interested!
Setup different stations where students can drop a chemical on a penny until they spill over the penny! Which chemical will require the most drops? How many?
Have your students rotate through stations or combine group data to complete this handout. Then, discuss the IMFs within each chemical that would affect the outcome. Does their data match their expectations based on IMF?
This is a great lab to use as a review at the end of a unit on IMFs or as an inquiry activity prior to learning IMFs!
This is a WORD document, so you can edit it however you like!
