Flame Test Lab of Compounds and Colors.
This chemistry lab uses hand sanitizer and household chemicals of sodium chloride (table salt), potassium chloride (salt substitute), sodium borate (insecticide with borax acid) and potassium hydrogen tartare (cream of tartar) in a safe and fun fiery introduction to compounds! Excite electrons and ignite your students interest in elements with this demonstration of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purplish flames.
