Mushy Molecules

Believe it or not, that marshmallow monstrosity is all a part of Andrew’s homeschool Pre-Chem lesson. He’s learning about atoms and molecules in the photos. We are following a book that teaches junior high chemistry concepts at a kindergarten-3rd grade level. Here’s a shot of him sampling an atom!

Later in the week we delved into the mysteries and tastes of acids and bases. We had quarter-cup samples of vinegar, lemon juice, alka-seltzer water and mineral water. Got to boil a whole head of red cabbage in distilled water, too!

Next week's lesson: Mixtures and solutions.
