Do Bioplastics Have the Same Properties as Synthetic?

Students use a 250 mL beaker of L-lactic acid and place it on a hot plate and prepare a plastic. They take a sample of polystyrene. Observe and record physical properties of the plastic such as color, transparency, thickness. Record these in their data section. Finally, students perform the tests as listed and record all observations from each test in data section.

Lesson Planet has been my place to go in order to find great additions to the curriculum. The lesson plans and worksheets I have found have been perfect for the lesson plans I had already planned. Because all lessons are reviewed by teachers, I know that every lesson I choose to look through will be pertinent and standard oriented without the fluff.
