The holidays are here and I have a very special gift for you:  Four miscellaneous fun labs that you can do with your classes (of all ages) or with your family.  Call me Santa!

Speaking of the holidays, if you’ve got a special science teacher in your life, consider giving them the gift of the link to this site (it’s  Not only do we have lots of great stuff, but it’s all completely free to use.  You don’t have to tell them the site is free though – tell them it’s a subscription that costs lots of money if you’re interested in getting something good in return.

Other stuff:

  • If you homeschool, check out the new chemistry curriculum I’m putting together at  It, like all of my resources, is free.
  • If you’re a classroom teacher, you might want to check out the SEAChem site, too, because the resources I’m posting there are all suitable for classroom use, too.
  • My high school chemistry textbook Chemistry the Awesomest Science is picking up in popularity and is being used in a number of schools worldwide.  Why not check it out and use it with your class, too?
  • Middle school physical science teachers may prefer my textbook in progress, Physical Science:  A Smorgasbord of Knowledge.  It’s not yet done, but might help with your teaching.
  • I haven’t updated my YouTube channel in a long time, but if you haven’t seen it you might find it amusing.

Anyhow, I hope you’re having a good holiday season and get lots of turkey and gifts and so forth.  And if you’re a teacher, take a few days during the break to relax and drink a lot of egg nog.
