Homeschool Chemistry for Kids: Weekly Experiments You Can Do at Home

Class
Elene Feigenbaum
Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(119)
In this 6-week ongoing weekly class, students will perform chemistry experiments using household materials and learn the science behind them.

Class experience

Students will perform experiments that will help them understand the following concepts: electrostatics, density, fluids, acids and bases, chemical reactions, and phase changes.
I have been a private school middle and high school science teacher for over 30 years. During that time, I taught classes in chemistry, engineering, earth science, life science, chemistry, forensic science, biology, and health.  I enjoy teaching through hands-on experimentation and I believe that students learn best when they are activity engaged in the learning process and when they connect new concept with prior experiences. I have both a bachelor's and a master's degree in chemistry, as well as a secondary chemistry education teaching certificate from the state of Ohio.

Please be aware that students  in this class will be experimenting with rubbing alcohol, lamp oil, hydrogen peroxide, and vinegar.  Other household materials may include soap, acids or bases that the parents can choose to work with depending on their comfort level.  Please make sure that you are comfortable having your child use these chemical and do not have an any allergies to them.  One of the experiments involves making ice cream.  If you child has a milk allergy, they can substitute a milk-free substance, such as almond milk or coconut milk.

While all substances being used are household materials, the wearing of safety glasses are encouraged when working with chemicals, such as alcohol, acids, bases, hydrogen peroxide and vinegar.
