These pictures are from our “Chemical Reactions- Inquiry Lab.” Students observed and responded to 4 different labs which depicted chemical reactions.

Students watched in aw, in the dark, as glowing foam rose from my beaker. Next was “Ghoulish Glowing Slime,” which was an absolute bust, and didn’t work, but was used as a teachable moment anyhow and students were able to observe a gel substance form around powder in a reaction between calcium chloride, fluorescein solution and sodium alginate. After that students were shocked by the secret spooky writing revealed in the “Writing in Blood-Red Iron” experiment. A secret message was written using a potassium thiocyanate solution and then uncovered when sprayed with an iron chloride. The best was saved for last when students when students observed “Magic Genie.” This was a fizzy, color changing explosion due to the reaction between hydrogen peroxide and potassium iodide. Students were required to write down the steps of each experiment, observations, as well as listing the chemical reaction that occurred in each.Read More
