Discovering Chemical Changes

Fourth graders predict what happens in a teacher demonstration of a chemical change, before watching it. They observe the demonstration and list what the see on the board before determining which represent chemical change. Working at stations they complete simple inquiry based activities that show a chemical reaction such as rusting, chemical cold packs, Alka-seltzer melting, oxidation, and exothermic reactions.

I train teachers pre-K-12 to use the arts to teach any subject (arts integration). Lesson Planet has given me some great ideas to share as we all attempt to make the arts an important part of every child's education.
