Middle-grades educator Bill Ferriter in this blog post shares a science lesson that he and his colleagues developed using everyday products to help sixth-grade students learn about the elements. The lesson -- framed on the metaphor that the "Elements are the Pantry of the Universe" -- calls for students to find the elements in common household products such as toothpaste and sports drinks. The post includes a link to classroom materials, handouts and online resources on the elements.
Students learn the elements by identifying them in the pantry
