Chemistry Questions

Selena has been asking so many wonderful questions lately that are related to Chemistry. Why does heat make eggs change? Why did the water jug pop after you took it out of the refrigerator and left it on the counter? Why does this dissolve in water, while that doesn’t? Way too many questions to really list here, but many of her questions have been great Chemistry questions.

In a search to how we would tackle these mysteries and more I came upon a site called I guess you know that we will be taking a little walk down Chemistry lane. I knew she was getting pretty curious about this subject when we were talking about our World, and I would write the Chemical Symbol for different things we were talking about like Oxygen, Water, and Carbon Dioxide.

I have printed quite a bit of material from the above site, as well as found a nice printable desk size Periodic Table of Elements from here. We will also have a lot of fun with many different experiments using common home products. Stay tuned to see everything we do. I think this is going to be a fun time in our homeschool.

  1. You know, I went back and forth on going deeper into chemistry. It was my favorite subject in school, but I sort of liked getting into it as a teenager and being able to do all the experimenting on my own, doing exactly what I wanted and understanding why things happen. But I can see that Selena will enjoy at least some introduction to this topic and a deeper drill down when she is older.
