360Science™: Elements, Compounds and Mixtures

By: The Flinn Staff

360Science™  blends the best of student-engaging digital content with easily adaptable hands-on labs to offer your students a uniquely comprehensive learning experience. 

In this lab experience,
 students are guided to classify different types of matter—elements, compounds and mixtures—determining whether these types of matter be broken down or combined to make something new.  With editable, differentiated instructions that range all the way from a time-sensitive prescriptive lab to full open inquiry and robust online videos and content that help students prep for and better understand the labs they’re conducting, we’ve taken away the anxiety of doing labs—while leaving in all of the excitement.

360Science™: Elements, Compounds and Mixtures
Matter, elements, compounds, mixtures
Outcomes: These four labs will help you help your students understand the fundamentals of matter. When students attempt to break down elements by physical means, such as cutting aluminum foil with scissors, they quickly discover that the element did not change or turn into something else, but rather its identity remained. A combination of substances in the form of a chemical reaction proved to the students that matter cannot be created or destroyed, but can be combined to form new substances. Students have a hands-on approach to looking at and exploring real elements and compounds in this lab in various states—solid, liquid and gas.

Our 1-year option provides access to all digital content for one year plus lab supplies for a single class of 30 students. Our 3-year option extends access to digital content to three years, with a 30% discount on refill supply kits years 2 and 3.

What is Flinn 360Science™?
We’re introducing a whole new way to teach experiential science! We’ve taken a hard look at science study from all perspectives and, thanks to the feedback of thousands of teachers nationwide, we’ve created a way to make it easier to provide personalized instruction while delivering the kind of lab experiences your students truly need.

Our new and comprehensive learning solutions are designed to bring science to life by giving you all the tools you need to incorporate more (and effective) hands-on learning in your classroom or lab. 360Science allows you to provide your students with the support they need to make real-world connections to key scientific principles and help make those abstract concepts concrete.

Every 360Science lab solves the most common challenges educators face in bringing more hands-on science to their students—from not having enough time to matching the right level of challenge for students’ abilities to providing appropriate background content, safety techniques, assessments and more.

Enable student-driven, blended learning through a unique combination of leveled lab instructions supporting prescriptive, guided- and open-inquiry lab exercises (see PDF resource for specific details) with robust digital content, such as videos and carefully curated Open Educational Resources (OER)—along with virtual reality and simulation exercises. From editable, digital instructions to assessments and alignment with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), we have everything you need to improve mastery, remove the intimidation factor and foster your students’ natural curiosity.
