In Everyday Chemistry, students explore the chemistry involved in everyday foods and drinks. Students use milk and dairy products to investigate the properties of foods and drinks and find out what happens when they are mixed, heated and cooled. Project activities are sequenced to have students:

  • Spark Curiosity and Inquiry
  • Search and Investigate
  • Design and Create
  • Publish and Share

Customized learning is facilitated with fillable text fields and checkboxes that allow you and your students to save and complete activities and assessments.
