Product Description
A unit on Measurement is an excellent back-to-school science unit for elementary, middle school, and secondary students. This interesting science experiment is hands on and is an excellent avenue for using the triple beam balance and reviewing how to measure mass.

The sea shells of mollusks placed in a cup of vinegar will instantaneously react with the acid! Students can observe the bubbles of carbon dioxide and measure the decreasing mass of the shell as the chemical reaction proceeds over the course of several days. The science behind the mass loss is explained and the chemical formula for the reaction in the ocean is provided. The data table to record the results is included as is graph paper which can be integrated into a laboratory notebook.

Sea shells are the remnants of Mollusks. Information and document camera-ready images are provided that include content notes in a graphic format. Information is also included about Ocean acidification.

Finally, directions to stain sea shells are described!

Crystals can be made from the leftover saturated solution!
