  • Lava Lamps...

    Posted by Harry Williams on 10/2/2019 3:15:00 PM

    In our study of Matter and Mixtures, an interesting version of a mixture is the old school Lava Lamp (the first one I ever saw was bought by my sister in 1968).  I'll be sending home a paper from which the students can make a "home version" of a lava lamp for extra credit, but some students had never seen one!

     

    Consider that problem solved:
