Goal: to determine which solvent dissolves the solute the best
-Easy step by step procedure
-Uses inexpensive lab materials
-Has students create an experimental title and prediction
-Includes questions for the conclusion that students can use as a prompt for a thorough and proper conclusion for a chemistry lab
-Works as a great lab to really get kids to understand the differences between a solute and solvent while exploring the process of dissolving. Also works great as a review activity or assessment.
Exit ticket: Conclusion and questions on lab sheet
