Studying Chemistry a Fun Way

While working through Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics from Apologia, we completed these two very fun projects this week.

First, a complete table of the elements made entirely from sugar cookies!

We had a lot of fun reviewing all the different elements as they were written on the cookies, as well as spelling out names and words with the cookies afterwards. We ate the 'poisonous', most deadly elements and didn't even get sick!

We also built a water molecule out of candies and paper plates. The larger plate represents oxygen and the two smaller plates represent hydrogen atoms, of course. Protons, neutrons, and electrons are present inside the atoms.
