What is the theme or topic to be presented?
Exothermic and Endothermic reactions as demonstrated through the creation of
hand warmers and ice cream.
Students will be able to:
• Apply the processes of exothermic and endothermic reactions to the
creation of useable objects.
• Explain the exothermic and endothermic reactions involved in the making
of ice cream and hand warmers.
Year 11 4.4 Design and carry out experiment to describe the exothermic reaction and endothermic reaction
Ideas for Building Materials (per student):
Additional materials are necessary for the “lowering the freezing point”
experiment that enhances this lesson, the materials list for that activity can be
found in the lesson overview below.
