Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus...right into your classroom in a snowstorm! Capture the attention of your entire classroom with this fun holiday seasonal demonstration. Explore the topics of solubility, saturation and supersaturation with this easy-to-prepare demonstration. Simply place excess benzoic acid in a heated solvent until a supersaturated solution forms. As the solution cools excess benzoic acid precipitates out in a “snow-like” form. It's a winter wonderland in a bottle! Enough materials are included to perform the demonstration seven times.
Concepts: Solubility, saturation, supersaturation, solvents.
Time Required: 15 minutes
Materials Provided: Benzoic acid, giant snow “globe,” bendable Santa Claus figurine.
