Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

Add a splash of color to your flame! In this kit, students will observe the characteristic color of light emitted by metallic salts when placed in a flame. By simply dipping a moist wooden splint in the solid metallic salt, then placing the wooden splint in the flame, students will be able to identify the color of light emitted for calcium, copper, lithium, potassium, sodium, and strontium.

The basic lab activity is ideal for physical science and introductory chemistry classes. Incorporate the optional data analysis section and extensions to challenge your higher level students. Includes reproducible student handouts with detailed background section and optional data analysis section, complete Teacher Notes with sample data, answers to questions, and ideas for extensions, plus all the materials needed to perform the lab.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
