Working with Matter

Chemistry in the Lab!


In the Discovery lab, 5th graders began to explore matter. We began to think about matter with a demonstration of Classic Coke and Diet Coke….the Diet Coke can floated in water and the Classic Coke sank! Students were surprised to see that outcome and began to explore more about how liquids combine. From these experiences, students were able to learn about density–a physical property of matter. This lesson was fun, messy, and will lead us into learning about chemical engineering!
