We are continuing our Science lesson using Real Science 4 Kids Chemistry Level 1 and really enjoying it. It helps that we have good friends that get together with us to do labs. Here are some of our different experiments. Since we are with friends I don't always remember to take pictures of every step so bare with me here:)
Unmixing a solution
We had the kids mix several items and then brain storm how we could unmix them. We mix, salt, sand, lentil and iron shavings into a bowl
Used a colander to remove the lentils
Use a magnet to remove the iron shavings.
Used a sieve, coffee filter and water to remove the sand
boiled the water away to reach the salt
Finding starches in food using iodine
We are enjoying both getting together with friends to do our labs as well as the actual science program - Real Science 4 kids.
