Science

20-30 Minute Chemistry Demonstrations


Presentations Date. Wednesday, May 18th during LA time

Why: Explain your understanding of Matter

How: On May 18th, you have a total of 20-30 minutes to demonstrate four things (one or two items in each of the three sections)

Section I (pick four)
Matter
Not Matter
Pure Substances
Mixtures
Elements
Compounds
Heterogenous Mixtures
Homogenous Mixtures

Section II (pick three from physical AND two from hemical properties of matter) Actually show what it means!
Physical Properties:
colour, ductility, malleability, density, boiling point, melting point, conductivity, crystalline structure, brittleness, magnetism, solubility, viscosity, hardness, state, lustre
Chemical Properties:
Flammability, corrosion and reactions with acid

Section III (show the difference)
Physical vs Chemical Change

Section IV (this can be a drama or video or what ever....ice to water to vapour is boring)
Kinetic Molecular Theory in Action

This is a PEER MARKING assignment

Peers will mark on:
40%: Creativity- How well do the students show uniqueness, art and visual aspects? Did students show an interesting way to demonstrate their understanding
20%: Science-Was the science correct? Are all aspects of the four sections complete
40%- Demonstrations - How were the demonstrations? Did they WOW the audience? Did great? Good? Just Ok? Or Awful


Deduction points:

-1 point for major safety issues
-1 point for fooling around in the lab
-.5 for breaking lab equipment
-.5 for minor safety issues (not wearing lab coats and goggles when they are needed)
