Teach your 4th, 5th and 6th grade students about the dissolving process and solubility with these hands-on, highly engaging experiments and activities. Your students will love learning about what dissolves in water and changes that can speed up or slow down the dissolving process. These experiments and activities will help your students better understand solubility. This 8 page resource includes “What dissolves in water?” dissolving experiment and recording sheet, “How does temperature, stirring, and surface area affect the process of dissolving?” experiment and recording sheet (one for sugar cubes and one for hot chocolate packets), higher order thinking questions discussion cards, exit slips, and a standards mastery checklist. You won’t need anything else to teach the dissolving process with this resource! Wondering what materials will be needed for this matter lesson? All materials are common household items and can probably be found around your house or classroom. This is to make life even easier on you!

Dissolving and Solubility Experiments and Activities covers the following standards:
- NGSS MS-PS1-2: Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred
- Florida Standard: SC.5.P.8.2 Investigate and identify materials that will dissolve in water and those that will not and identify the conditions that will speed up or slow down the dissolving process
- Texas Standard: SCI.5.5.A Matter and energy. The student knows that matter has measurable physical properties and those properties determine how matter is classified, changed, and used. The student is expected to: classify matter based on measurable, testable, and observable physical properties, including mass, magnetism, physical state (solid, liquid, and gas), relative density (sinking and floating using water as a reference point), solubility in water, and the ability to conduct or insulate thermal energy or electric energy
