Classroom activities: These activities are included to either introduce the information necessary to perform the experiments or to review their outcome. There are a total of five classroom activities scheduled. Two prior to, and one after, the first experiment, and one each prior and after the second experiment. The materials that will be used during these classroom activities will be provided and are described in the following pages.
