This interactive physical science lab with full teacher key, teaching tips, and even a student permission slip reinforces the concepts of physical and chemical changes. This lab works perfectly for classes that utilize interactive notebooks. The lab is sized (no shrinking or enlarging when copying!) and has dotted lines to guide students when cutting (to avoid wasting class time). Other versions of the lab are included for classrooms that do not utilize interactive notebooks. Students will be fully engaged as they create a s'more, and note all the physical and chemical changes involved. Many biology and digestive system tie ins will serve as a re-teach of those lessons. Approximately two class periods in length. Time estimate includes pre lab and performing the lab itself (as a point of reference I teach a 50 minute class). My students love this lab; the fact they get to reinforce their knowledge by making a s'more makes it even better! Could be adapted to be shorter or longer based on teacher preference. A great resource for any curriculum that includes physical science, physical changes and chemical changes. To make sure you get a product that is perfect for your lab, I have included four versions of the lab. Versions are adapted for the following: interactive notebooks, non interactive notebooks, using Bunsen burners, and using hot plates. Since students are eating in this activity, I've included a permission slip to send home prior to lab day. Of course a full teacher key, set up instructions, and all the tips and tricks I've discovered that make the lab flow more smoothly are included at no extra charge! Created by Mister Science.
