Use this worksheet to bring in several science concepts when completing the Silver Holiday Ornaments lab from Flinn. Students count atoms to confirm conservation of matter, review what reactants and products are, calculate a gram to mole calcuation for the silver used in the experiment, and review particle motion in terms of agitation vs. temperature's effect on reactions.
I use this to remind students of concepts we've already covered, and introduce a few new ideas with what an R-group is, and balancing equations.
The original lab is available FREE from Flinn's website (link in document), and my document is FREE as well. Happy Holidays!
