Grades 6, 7

Chemical science

In this experiment, students are introduced to chemical and physical changes and challenged to use data and observations to determine types of changes.  Students will observe physical and chemical properties of reactants and products to determine if a new product with different properties is created.  Students will look at two reactions: dry ice with water and calcium carbonate with acetic acid.
