    i always used the inquiry a diet soda and the same brand non-diet and they
    have to infer if they will sink or float on paper. i place them in a see
    thru container, a 15 gallon aquarium works well and the students watch what
    happens and they write 3 reasons why this occurred. the diet floats, the
    regular one sinks. then we weigh them and discuss. i take 3 packs of sugar
    from resturants nutra-sweet, sugar and nongranulated sugar and we weigh them
    individually.........jann

    Subject: [Channel-talkchemistry] first day labs

    > My friend Laura and I are doing the Reactions in Chemistry course this
    > summer. We also thought the water softening lab could be a potential
    > activity for the first lab of the year. I also like the glue ball lab for
    > the first day, primarily because it could be done very quickly or become
    > more extended, depending on the first day schedule (in my experience, the
    > class periods end up really short because of extended homeroom).
    >
    > Another good activity for the first day is the CuCl2-aluminum foil
    > reaction. I got this lab several years from a colleague. Students feel
    > like they're really doing chemistry (because they are!); I like the
    > students to jump right in. I've attached the handout that I use if anyone
    > is interested.
    >
    > I'd love to find out what other hands-on activities teachers use the first
    > day of class.
