We are smack dab in the middle of a unit on Chemistry. It started with my science class on acids and bases, which they loved. From there I found a free Intro to Chemistry lapbook here:
So far K has made element trading cards, filled out a worksheet matching the element with it’s symbol, made the three states of matter circles and a tri-fold book about acids, bases and neutrals. Later this week we plan on making an edible atom, writing a mini-book comparing mixtures with solutions with elements with compounds and making some cover art for our lapbook.
K is also deep in the book Horrible Science-Chemical Chaos
Some other things I have planned:
