PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Kool Aid Concentration Experiment
Appropriate for grades 6-8 & Homeschool

**As Featured in my 6th Grade Chemistry Unit Plan**


PURPOSE:
This experiment uses calculations and conversions to figure out how the concentration of a solution can be affected by changing either the amount of solute, solvent or both. These are vocabulary words that their high school teachers will surely thank you for introducing. Download this experiment and start mixing up some Kool Aid with your students today.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:
This product contains:
     ☆Experiment Walkthrough and Notes
     ☆Experiment Handout
     ☆Experiment Handout Answer Key

STORY:
If your students are anything like mine, they love sugar. Why not put that love for sugar to good use by learning a little bit more about concentration of solutes in solvents? This experiment introduces your middle schoolers to the larger world of molarity including touching on Avogadro's number, finding the molecular weight of a molecule and tasting for yourself what "double the concentration" actually means.

POSSIBLE EXTENSIONS:
After completing the experiment, you could discuss how scientists have to repeat experiments to make sure the results are valid. Have a discussion about what could be done differently.

MATERIALS/PRE-REQS:
Besides this file, you may require:
     ☆3 packets of Kool Aid Mix
     ☆Pitcher (at least 4 liter)
     ☆64 ten-ounce (or more) identical cups
     ☆4 cups of sugar
     ☆1 scale that measures grams
     ☆16 Straws or stirring sticks
     ☆16 Calculators
