There are no scientific explanations written into the lesson plan, so make sure that you have taught them about the process of saponification

I taught in the public schools for many years. When I moved to Japan and began teaching a large ESOL population, I found that I needed more resources and there just aren't "teacher stores" around. Lesson Planet has been a big help with supplemental material.
