This manual begins with explanations and demonstrations of the differences between physical changes and chemical changes. It goes on to cover solutions, balancing chemical equations, the pH scale, acids and bases, chromatography, and the separation of colored substances. Students will learn about combustion and the science behind rust and tarnish. Because chemistry is a subject that is naturally rich in physical science topics, students who are learning about the reaction between vinegar and baking soda, for example, also will be engaged in learning about the Law of Conservation of Mass. The unit abounds in eye-catching demonstrations and attention-grabbing student activities. Students will discover and construct knowledge for themselves using inquiry-based science.
The book comes with downloadable worksheets for children, as well as an array of downloadable images to project for the students to see. It is appropriate for teaching children ages 9-14 (grades 4-8).
