I planned the chalk activity (twice) and nature nixed it both times by dumping snow on our sidewalk. We ended up making BIG Valentine cards on pink paper instead! It was fun for the day before the Feb break.

I am a little slow getting started on this exchange. I would like to comment on 2 things in the first video. I have done reactions in baggies and blindfolded the students so that they know there are more ways to make observations than just visually. Also, I checked with my principal to let him know we were going to do the chalk activity outside, and he told me we would have to clean up whatever we drew outside. He also said he did not want anything inappropriate written on school grounds. I did not believe either of those would be a problem.

I saw that on a college website - that is a great idea!

I also used fudge to connect real-world experiences to chemistry but I used fudge as an intro to solutions, solubility, and saturation points. I am fortunate in working in a small school because I was able to take the students into the kitchen and whip up the recipe for them. We first compared butter, milk and sugar stirred at room temperature and the lack of the solute being dissolved by the solution. From that point, we, of course, heated the solution and was able to add quite a lot of sugar into the solution.
