My students will be able to use the sodium alginate and calcium lactate to create edible water bottles in class. This project is one of the first that introduces my students to measurement with beakers. My students will use the paper souffle cups to measure out the required amount of each of the substances and then measure the amount of solute they have made with the beakers. With these materials they will be able to create edible water bottles that they can eat (or just play with). Students will learn how to use measurement beakers, measure their own "chemicals", and engage in a fun (and edible) activity. We will be able to continue to use the beakers, both plastic and glass, throughout the year on many different projects. I plan on using the test tubes to complete our "Rainbow Lab" which supports the measurement lab and also teaches student how to mix materials to create new ones. In this lab, they begin with three primary colors of water in different volumes and will have to mix their existing primary colors to create a rainbow of water colors. The main catch is that each test tube has to have the same amount of water in each of the tubes at the end. This project involves a lot of trial and error and is fun and easy for the students to experiment with. The tin foil will be used on another project that requires students to engineer a boat that can hold as many pennies as possible. This project will teach them about surface tension on water, engineering, and team work.
