Product Details

Place three clear and colorless solutions all in a row, play some patriotic march music in the background, and add a single yellow solution to each beaker. Cheers, cheers for the red, white and blue—the colors of Old Glory emerge in time to the music! Introduce your students to the nature of chemical reactions with this colorful kit. What kinds of observations provide evidence that a chemical reaction has occurred? The vivid colors in this demonstration will leave a lasting impression as students learn about double replacement reactions and complex ion formation. Teacher Demonstration Notes included.
