Product Details

The study of chemistry begins in the lab! Build a solid foundation for student achievement with five activities—three experiments, one demonstration and a POGIL™ activity.

• The scientific method is a process of discovery! Begin with Observation and Experiment, a guided-inquiry lab that students hold in their hands to see and feel what chemistry is all about.
• Captivate students with the most popular demonstration ever, Polyurethane Foam! Students learn about chemical and physical changes leading to one amazing product.
• With the Organizing Data POGIL activity, students recognize that the scientific method involves more than collecting data.
• Learn to measure mass and volume, graph data and identify trends with the Discovering Density experiment.
• Continue sorting data with the Properties of Elements microscale experiment. Investigate the physical and chemical properties of eight elements and classify them as metals, nonmetals or metalloids.

The package includes chemicals and specialty equipment to perform the lab and learning activities listed below. Quantities of chemicals are sufficient for three classes of 30 students working in pairs! Instructions for all activities may be found in Introduction to Chemistry, Volume 1, and Elements, Compounds and Mixtures, Volume 2 in the Flinn ChemTopic™ Labs series. Both books are included in the package. . Common laboratory equipment is required and available separately.

  • Observation and Experiment—Introduction to the Scientific Method (Experiment)
  • Organizing Data (POGIL™ Activity)
  • Discovering Density—Looking for Patterns and Trends (Experiment)
  • Polyurethane Foam—Physical and Chemical Changes (Demonstration)
