Jam has been using Discovering Design with Chemistry book from Dr Jay L Wile. We bought their science kit as well. It's been great to have all the necessary chemicals etc together and makes it super easy to do the experiments. We did have to purchase a few things, but really basic supplies that you could pick up at the hardware store.
This experiment is called Flame Tests and is found in Chapter 4 and just happens to be experiment 4 too.
We decided to video it as it was a very quick but visual experiment. Plus anything with flames means I like to be involved. Yes we did this in our kitchen sink. Although it was super safe Jam made sure everyone had on safety goggles!
I uploaded the video to my blog's You Tube channel. I'm going to be trying to do more over there so please subscribe if you want to see more of our videos.
I won this science book in a giveaway and we really like it.
