Get your students going or incorporate this great (and easy) chemistry lab into your science classroom.
This is also the perfect summer activity for parents to use with their children to help get them interested in science. I use this lab packet to introduce my 4th graders to the scientific method, but it would be great for an elementary school chemistry lesson about chemical reactions.
The preview provides 3 sample pages of the lab- the full document comes with a detailed procedure, data table (that will have students completing 3 trials and finding the average), and guiding directions for all of the scientific method steps. This is a great assessment tool to see where your scientists are with their writing skills as well!
Safety Tip: Never use regular Alla-Selzter tablets- instead buy the "Gold" version which does not have aspirin. Some students may be allergic to aspirin products and safety equipment should be worn at all times.
