KHS Chemistry and Earth Science classes learn through fun

This week the physical science department has been full of educational labs, as well as impor­tant lessons. Chemis­try students have been learning about the be­havior of supersaturated solutions.

Kanab High Chemistry students participate in lab learning about the behavior of supersaturated solutions.

What better way to demonstrate that than making rock candy? While sugar does slowly crystallize into a delicious piece of candy, students also were able to use sodium sulfate to demonstrate the im­mediate crystallization of a supersaturated solution.

This is al­ways a fa­vorite lab to participate in. The Chemis­try standards explore the foundational principles of chemistry that allow students to investigate how chemis­try impacts their everyday life.

Earth Science students are currently studying the importance of carbon and the cycling of carbon among Earth’s systems. They can now recognize the slow and fast pro­cesses that carbon atoms undergo and where our fossil fuels come from. They will also be able to see the changes in our at­mosphere due to human activity.

Overall, our Earth Science standards inves­tigate processes and mechanisms that encourage students to use computational thinking to ex­plain sustainable and natural re­sources, focusing on responsible stewardship.
