Overview

Teaching Chemistry with Toys Science Activity Book

Product Details

Exciting projects use ordinary toys and play materials to demonstrate chemistry principles. Based on the successful Teaching Science with TOYS program funded by the National Science Foundation and Miami University of Ohio, these projects ilustrate principles such as sloubility, permeability, volatility, and attraction and repulsion by incorporating crayons, paint balloons, Silly Putty, Magic Sand and other common materials. For instance, with grow creatures and superabsorber, students use the scientific method, take measurements and plot graphs to study physical change.

For each activity, the authors provide a list of the key science topics covered and process skills used, the estimated completion time, a materials list, step-by-step instructions, safety and disposal procedures, suggestions for varying or expanding the activity, an explanation of the results, and reproducible student worksheets. Connections to the National Science Education Standards for each activity are also provided.

  • 42 activities grouped separately for grades K-3, 4-6, and 7-9
  • 296 pages
