The 4th of July is a great time to celebrate the birthday of our country and the science of chemistry. All the different colors that you see in the fireworks displays are possible because of chemists mixing elements and compounds together. This post from Chemistry Professor Bassam Z. Shakhashiri at the University of Wisconsin-Madison called Chemical of the Week: fireworks explains how the different colors are created and what chemicals go into them. It is so amazing how different combinations of our roughly 120 elements can make something so beautiful.
To celebrate this beauty and our nation’s birthday I am having a giant sale in my store. Everything is 20% off or more. You can find everything you need to start the year off right and teach the scientific method.

Plus if you are curious about flipping your science class but don’t know how to get started or don’t think you have the time than check out my flipped lessons. They have everything you need including links to videos, note taking templates, mini quizzes, and differentiated lessons to do in class the day after the flip. I’ve done all the work for you so you can flip your class with ease.
