This week, the Third Grade learned that different elements give off a different color when heat energy is applied to them with a flame. Under the careful supervision of our OmniLearn staff, students held rods dipped in Copper, Strontium, Potassium, and other elements into a flame to see what color the flame turned. They were then able to identify the element based on the color of the flame even if they had not seen what element the rod had been dipped into.
