PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Percent Sugar in Bubble Gum
Sometimes you need a chemistry or biology activity and you just aren’t in a place where a lab is available that’s on topic (electron configurations, anyone?). This quick and inexpensive activity is the ticket!
Students will determine the percent sugar in a piece of bubble gum. (Dubble Bubble is readily available.) The only other things you need are balances. It’s easy to control (less mess than you’d think), generates lots of conversation between students, and uses the concept of moles and molecules if you’ve gotten to that point as an extension. Lower grades can use this to reinforce percent.
Includes a non-chemistry version to use in a math class or in a lower level science with the focus on percent composition.
