The Elements, Compounds and Mixtures Chemistry Laboratory Kits are composed of four activities ideal for teaching the concepts of elements, compounds, and mixtures. Familiarize students with element symbols, flow charts, and more!
A great, high-quality introductory kit—ideal for teaching the concepts of elements, compounds, and mixtures. Four separate activities are provided.
• The first paper-and-pencil activity will familiarize students with common element symbols and names.
• In the second “classification of matter” activity, students use a flow chart to classify various materials as either an element, a compound, or a mixture.
• Next is a laboratory activity in which students use physical separation techniques to separate a mixture consisting of sand, salt, zinc, and iron filings.
• Then, students chemically react aluminum with copper(II) chloride to produce and isolate a new element and compound. Detailed Teacher Notes and reproducible student handouts include easy-to-follow lab instructions, sample data, answers to questions, and in-depth background information. All chemicals and specialized equipment are provided. Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working in pairs. One magnetic wand is included with the kit—additional wands are available separately.
