Product Description
** Please rate, if you give it less than perfect, please indicate why so I can improve.**
A lab experiment looking at various ways to remove (vegetable) oil from water using items that absorb to dispersants and skimmers. The student paper is very short because they tend to get wet and I am saving paper, so contact me if you need more details or explanations.
The activity is simple enough for elementary, so the questions can be adapted from 4-12. We have a modified block so I do this on 1 double period (90 minutes) you could do it in 2 single periods since you complete the lab once as written, then redo after adding dispersants (detergent). If you want to do it in a single period, you can skip the dispersants section and just test the absorbents.
