Chemistry: Investigating Your World

Make your own chemistry activity kit, and start Investigating Your World with students! Originally developed as part of the 2011 International Year of Chemistry celebration, and most appropriate for use in middle level classrooms, this teacher’s guide and activity kit provide the tools to teach students about chemical reactions. Through four lessons, tied together by an “international mystery” to solve, students explore chemical reactions resulting in the production of a gas, color change, formation of a precipitate, and temperature change. The lessons build inquiry skills while exploring the meanings of the terms reactant, product, precipitate, exothermic, and endothermic and how they are used in the context of chemical reactions.
