2. Checmical and Physical Changes with s'mores
After our study of the states of matter, we learned all about changes in matter. For the section on physical and chemical changes, I thought it would be most fun to see the difference between these two processes by making and eating s'mores. Many of my students had never heard of or made s'mores before so it was a real treat!
-Burning the marshmallow
-Eating the s'more
-Breaking the graham cracker
-Melting the chocolate
I was inspired to use the s'mores activity by the lesson idea I found on superteacherworksheets.com. The idea was originally submitted by Diana, a 7th grade teacher from Kentucky.
