After handing in our lab reports, we began today’s class with our latest CRotD: burning gasoline. While it surprised no one that burning gasoline was a chemical reaction, what students didn’t know was that the reaction mostly produces steam (H2O) and carbon dioxide (CO2). The expansion of those two gases is what powers your car’s engine.
After watching the gasoline reaction, we did a review carousel. Students moved from table to table answering chemistry questions and then checking their work. Students who were absent or wish to review the material can access the questions by clicking the link below.
