Week 32, Day 5: MORE FUN with Organic Chemistry!

Even block Schedule: Simple organic chem. Lab, review old released questions form past state science exams.

I forgot to set up the lab last night after sitting for a couple of hours at the D.M.V. awaiting my son's time to take his test for his learners permit.(he passed so no trip back soon is needed!)

Today's lab is about the 3 part of our Organic Chem standards, The large organic molecules of Carbohydrates, Lipids, Proteins and D.N.A.

The lab is simple.  Test some foods for STARCH with Iodine and LIPIDS with grease smears on paper bags. It is not my favorite lab, BUT IT IS A LAB and it does draw attention to the foods we eat and what is in them.
The Lab tests Bread, Potato chips, raw potato, cheese, crackers, raw bacon and cooking oil.

We had a lunch today by our principal to kick of our state testing next week, that was nice.

The afternoon class FLEW by today.


I hope this helps.

Love to Teach, and Teach with Passion!

It’s not Magic, It’s Science!
