Finally a collection of activities and lessons that will interest students and get them excited about chemistry! This lesson is formatted using the 5E's.

  • Students begin with an anchoring phenomena that involves watching a time-lapse video of cookies getting baked.

  • They then model the stages a cookie goes through when it's getting baked.

  • Next, students watch a video that explains the science behind baking cookies and they answer questions on the video.

  • Afterwards, they look at two cookie recipes and apply what they learned about baking cookies.

  • Finally, students answer two exit-slip questions that tie together what they learned.

Wow! All of these activities and questions in one document which is available in pdf and word form. There's more. You also get a key which is available in pdf and word form. Your students will thank you for choosing an exciting topic to teach them about food chemistry!

Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs. Emphasis is on student reasoning that focuses on the number and energy of collisions between molecules. Assessment is limited to simple reactions in which there are only two reactants; evidence from temperature, concentration, and rate data; and qualitative relationships between rate and temperature.
Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred. Examples of reactions could include burning sugar or steel wool, fat reacting with sodium hydroxide, and mixing zinc with hydrogen chloride. Assessment is limited to analysis of the following properties: density, melting point, boiling point, solubility, flammability, and odor.
Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed. Emphasis is on qualitative molecular-level models of solids, liquids, and gases to show that adding or removing thermal energy increases or decreases kinetic energy of the particles until a change of state occurs. Examples of models could include drawings and diagrams. Examples of particles could include molecules or inert atoms. Examples of pure substances could include water, carbon dioxide, and helium.
