With the Match the Mystery Solutions Guided-Inquiry Laboratory Kit, students brainstorm how to match mystery solutions with the same solutions a partner has. Once a course of action has been determined, no visual comparisons are allowed!
Challenge your students to solve the puzzle of the unknown solutions. Students brainstorm how to match three colorless mystery solutions with the same solutions a partner has. One catch—once a course of action has been determined, no visual comparisons are allowed! Good inquiry and communication skills are emphasized as students test the solutions and exchange information about the results. A great lab for the first day of class with 100% participation guaranteed!
